TAGBILARAN City, Bohol, Aug 30, 2014 (PIA) –In thirty minutes, students participating in the first leg of Bohol’s Student Writers Congress for Climate Change planted close to 2,000 fruit and lumber trees in a reforestation site in Calanggaman Ubay, August 29. 

Over 2 hectares of hilly grassland in the monotornous rolling hills of Ubay came alive as students bearing a lump of balled seedlings of endemic trees, fruits and quick lumber trees started filling the hills, in the early afternoon of Friday. 

And to encourage the student environment advocates in getting into the planting beat, kids from Ubay Central Elementary School Drum and Bugle Corps provided continuous drumbeats which reverberated on the rolling hills of this largely agricultural town. 

The tree planting activity forms part of the one day Student Writers’ Congress for the Environment, which aims to get to the students and enlist them to do Climate Change Adaptation and Resiliency of communities, according the PIA, event organizer. 

If in a lifetime, a person would need at least 300 trees to absorb the carbon he would have emitted, said CENRO Talibon Elpidio Palaca, during a pre event briefing held at the Ubay Gymnasium.
To get the student writers into the mood and get them the feel of how it is to be in a changed environment, organizers put in a 30 minutes f tree planting activity in the program design.

Trees, Palaca said would be the most helpful climate change mitigation, he said to the almost 200 student writers participating in the workshop.

Other than the students, also joining the activity were members of the Association of United Development Information Officers in Bohol, Volunteer Service Organization for Carood Watershed, army special forces, local government officials, teachers from the Department of Education, DENR, NGCP, LGU Ubay, Barangay Calangaman and PIA.

CENRO Talibon through Palaca provided the seedlings while LGU Ubay transported the seedlings to the reforestation area.

The volunteers were also ferried to the site by a bus provided by Congressman Rene Relampagos and Aristotle Aumentado. 

Over the development, DENR said we figured out if people would just get into the habit of planting one tree a day, we would be covering the 300 trees in a year. (PIA/RAC)
