DENR-CAR Joins PSA in Celebrating National Statistics Month


In observance of the 27th National Statistics Month and by virtue of DENR Special Order 425 series of 2016, DENR-CAR participated in a Tree-Tending Activity within the Busol Watershed Area on October 14, 2016.

Together with some representatives from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) and other participating agencies that include the BFP, DOST, DepEd, DSWD, NEDA, PROCOR, CDA, CSC BGH-Baguio, DILG-LGMED, DBM, NCIP, BLGF, DILG, NTC, DBM, HLURB, BSP, TESDA, PDEA and PNP, some DENR-CAR employees led in the proper tending of trees in the area as part of the protection and sustainable development of the watershed that benefits the greater area of Baguio and La Trinidad.

Prior to the actual tree tending activity, For. Victor Gorinto of CENRO Baguio delivered a small talk on the relevance of such activity in ensuring the survival of saplings in the area that would assure the watershed value of the Busol Watershed for generations to come.

For. Gorinto thereupon gave a demonstration of the removal of other competing vegetation around the sapling and the formation of a mulch to restore moisture for the sapling’s survival.

Engr. Francis G. Basali, Chief of the Planning and Management Division of DENR-CAR welcomed the event as the DENR’s expression of partnership with the PSA in realizing the importance of statistics in tracking the nation’s progress.

Furthermore, Engr. Basali explained that while it was fitting to do a tree-planting activity to commemorate the importance of the occasion, it was unwise to do so during this time of the year as the saplings would be overwhelmed by typhoons.

Prior to this activity, the DENR-CAR has also participated in some of the month-long activities of the PSA like the KAPIHAN, an encounter with the local media; a Zumba workout session and an Eco-walk.|AJTuraray
