Soon, There Will Be More Trees Adding a Touch of Greenery to the Metro

Several seedlings were planted along the banks of the Pasig River.

(SPOT.ph) In the fast-paced concrete jungle of Metro Manila, you're probably more likely to see towering skycrapers and several vehicles stuck in traffic instead of a glimpse of nature. Thankfully, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources - National Capital Region chapter is out to change that. On September 21, its Manila Bay Site Coordinating/Management Office, in coordination with the Pasig-Marikina-San Juan River Management Committee, conducted a tree-planting activity along the banks of Pasig River in Brgy.

Forty-nine bamboo seedlings and 37 bandera de espana seedlings were planted along the riverbanks in an effort to rehabilitate its bare areas. Several volunteers took part in the activity, including Mandaluyong City Mayor Carmelita A. Abalos as well as other local government officials.
