Growing Native Trees

First get-together of the Mindanao Philippine Native Tree Enthusiasts (MPNTE) under the canopy of lawaan trees in Riverside, Calinan, Davao City on 27 December 2019. Enthusiasts from as far as Iligan, Kidapawan, Mati, Nabunturan, Toril and Samal Island shared expertise and exchanged native tree seedlings. The group’s tee-shirt reads: “Growing Native Trees is Better, Together.” Photo by ARNOLD VANDENBROECK
