Entrego Community Based Tree-Planting for Carbon Sequestration

20 August 2021, Laguna Quezon Land Grant, Siniloan, Laguna.  34 excited  Entrego staff, some of whom had already planted during their first forest establishment last October 2021, joined in the 40 minute trek to their second planting site at Laguna Quezon Land Grant (LQLG) in Siniloan, Laguna – part of the Sierra Madre Mountain Range to add another 500 trees to their carbon sequestration and community livelihood support program; LQLG forms part of an over 9,000 hectare forest reserve managed by FEED’s longest Living Legacy partner, the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).

Some of the participants shared their experiences with us post planting, during the native binalot lunch break after sweating it out in the forest:

“It is so nice to leave the city and be one with our nature. Tree planting is fun together with colleagues. I learned a lot of things and definitely I will plant again with FEED” – Sarsy Roque

“To be able to give back to mother nature is super fulfilling for me, that’s why I always join with this kind of volunteerism” – Ron Landero

“Goal achieved! We are able to plant trees and the spirit of volunteerism is high. Everyone wanted to give their share in taking care of the environment.” – Kiko Vivas

Thank you ENTREGO EcoWarriors for another successful addition to our forests!

Entrego had already planted 500 native trees on the same site back in October 2021, when they restocked depleted forests through this CSR advocacy.

How Trees Secretly Talk to Each Other (BBC News)

Trees talk and share resources right under our feet, using a fungal network nicknamed the Wood Wide Web. Some plants use the system to support their offspring, while others hijack it to sabotage their rivals.
