Tree Planting

Philippine hard wood Molave, also locally known as Tugas, grows well in the Arapal Hills. Most have been cut by the locals for firewood and charcoal. Molave was used before iron age in the Philippines as nails to peg joints for boats and structures. Bird flock over the trees berry-like fruits. Today, as Molave has thinned, so has the presence of the birds. We hope to preserve the remaining Molave trees in the 21 hectare camp and plant more.

We also plan to plant mango trees. Mango is ideal for the climate and soil condition there. On steep hills, we plan to plant Mahogany trees. The camp management welcomes volunteers who will come  and plant trees. For more information, please contact

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which
I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.

I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
