As a licensed forester and president of the DENR- Association of Career Executives (ACE), DENR Undersecretary for Policy, Planning and International Affairs puts to heart all efforts to reforest the country’s denuded areas as he leads fellow executives in the department in planting some 1,000 native tree species in a 10-hectares area within the Angat watershed in Norzagaray, Bulacan province. Held October 6, 2018, the tree planting event was one of three community-focused activities of DENR-ACE in celebration of its 45th founding anniversary of the Career Executive Service Board on November 10, with theme: “Serbisyong CESO, Kalibre 45: Community Passion Projects.” The other two activities include a massive mangrove planting rehabilitation in Nasugbu, Batangas and coastal clean-up in the Las Pinas-Paranaque Critical Habitat and Ecotourism Area on October 13 and 20, respectively. ###
