The Philippine Air Force – Tactical Operations Group 10 (PAF-TOG-10) officials led its personnel in planting bamboo trees along riverbanks of Barangay Canitoan, Cagayan de Oro City as part of their environmental and reforestation advocacy.

PAF-TOG- 10 commander Lt. Col. Thurman B. Fanugao led the soldiers in the planting activities in support to the National Greening Program of the Government in Northern Mindanao over the weekend.

Fanugao said some 200 bamboo stems or culms were planted together with the Canitoan Barangay Council, TOG 10 Ladies Club, Anti Insurgency Group and PAF Reservist personnel.

“The activity is an effort in assisting National Greening Program in line with the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ (AFP) campaign, “Development Support and Security Plan” or “Kapayapaan.”

He said it was also conducted in all military camps across the country.

“Considering all the environmental benefits of bamboos, it is a priority project of the AFP to mitigate the effects of climate change and contribute to disaster management,” he said.

He also encouraged the public to support the government greening and reforestation program by planting trees or flowers, and even vegetable gardens.

“Trees not only clean the air, but is also our protection against storm, while flowers beautify our surrounding and the vegetable gardens can sustain our daily needs and the vegetables keep us healthy,” he said.
