Planting for Friends of the Forest

21 January 2023, Siniloan, Laguna Quezon Land Grant, Sierra Madre Mountain Range.  Thank you to the 18 ecowarriors who braved the intense morning rains to plant 80 Malaruhat native Philippine trees at the Laguna Quezon Land Grant, part of an over 9,000 hectare protected forest reserve in the SIerra Madres.

As volunteers, they dedicated their planting to their CEO and President, Mr. Nestor J. Padilla, and the late-Chairman of the Board, Ambassador Manuel M. Lopez, as well as contributing to the FEED scholarship fund – which helped finance the latest University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) scholar completing his Masters thesis research on carbon sequestration capabilities at the same forest.

Thank you also to the UPLB’s Forest Guardians who ensured proper site preparation, seedlings delivery and who also helped facilitate the planting: Dave Montecalvo, Darwin Bacasen, Adrian Delmundo, Roger Glipo, Benjie Velina, Teofilo Breganza, Jenniroso Alawas
and Joel Velina.

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.
