Teradata Cares: Planting 240 Native Trees to Restore Philippine Forests

20180630_110910.jpg30 June 2018, Laguna Quezon Land Grant, Siniloan, Laguna.  Teradata Cares Manila is the tagline and brand adopted by Teradata Inc. – a Business Analytics, Hybrid Cloud and Consulting company based in the Philippines – as part of their annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) advocacy program.

Thirty-one enthusiastic and fit Teradata staff traversed the 1.3 km trail one way to reach the peak of one of the Sierra Madre mountain ranges based in Siniloan, Laguna to plant 240 indigenous Philippine forest trees, amongst others “MAKAASIM” (Syzygium nitidum Benth), “BATINO” (Alstonia macrophylla) and “BALASBAS” (Evodia crassifolia Merr).

More on Indigenous Forest Tree Species

“Indigenous forest tree species are those which have evolved in the same area, region, or biotype where the forest stand is growing and are adapted to the specific ecological conditions predominant at the time of the establishment of the stand. These species form a valuable component of the dwindling timber resources of the country and deserve timely attention.

PH-ForestTrees.jpgIncreasing use of indigenous forest tree species is gaining headway. It augments the value and economic importance of these species and at the same time encourages the sustainable management of this particular forest resource.

The promotion, planning, and scientific monitoring and evaluation of this increased use of indigenous forest tree species must, however, be based on relevant or up-to-date information or data. It is for this reason that some diligent ERDB researchers have taken an initial step toward botanical research. With merger research funding, these researchers have trailblazed along botanical collection and exploration in a very specific locality in Laguna Province.”
