The ARMYs, led by King Namjoon PH, went to Siniloan, Laguna on Sept. 9 to plant the trees in an area that is part of the Sierra Madre mountain range.
RM, whose real name is Kim Nam Joon, turns 24 on Sept. 12.
“It took a 3-hour drive from Manila, 45-minute hike on mud and limatik infested path to reach the planting site. We passed through a stream and also had to cross through a 2-piece log. It was an exciting experience for us,” according to the group.
After the tree planting, a certificate of appreciation was given to Kim Nam Joon and King Namjoon Ph signed by Ofelia Bakker-Mananquil, president of the Fostering Education & Environment for Development (FEED), and forester Reynaldo Lorida of the University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB).
“We hereby acknowledge that Kim Nam Joon has helped keep our planet and people healthy by taking climate action through FEED’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Patrons Program, as part of the ‘Living Legacy: Plant a Tree, FEED our Future’ initiative – in partnership with King Namjoon PH and in collaboration with the University of the Philippines Los Banos (UPLB), planting indigenous Philippine tree species, including three years maintenance, targeting carbon capture at the UPLB Laguna-Quezon Land Grant site, in Siniloan, Laguna, on September 9th, 2018,” the certificate read.
BTS finished their concert in Los Angeles on Sept. 9 and the group will be touring other cities.”
