SAN JOSE, Antique – Student organizations in Guintas National School, Hamtic, Antique joined the nationwide movement for tree planting for the National Greening Program.

More than 200 students members of Youth for Environment in Schools Organization (YES-O) and Students Supreme Council of the said school joined the tree planting activity on Wednesday.

About 600 seedlings of fruit and timber trees were planted in about 1.5 hectares planting site near the school.

Aside from the students, the Parents Teachers Association, barangay officials from Guintas, Dangcalan and Linaban and neighboring barangays also joined in the activity.

Leila Butiong of the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) and NGP coordinator for the town of Hamtic said the tree planting activity is part of the series of activities instituted by CENRO San Jose and the Office of the Municipal Agriculturist of Hamtic in support to NGP.

The town of Hamtic has targeted five hectares as tree planting site under the Tree Park project and has already planted on more than four hectares.

Four schools in the town are supportive of this program, namely the General Leandro National School in Fabrica, Gov. Julio Macuja National High School in Caridad, Guintas National School and University of Antique-Hamtic Campus.

Nelda Eustaquio, adviser of YES-O, and Principal Jose Angel Cordero appealed for community support to this program by providing tree guards, watering the plants during summer months and keeping stray animals away from the site.

This is to ensure 100 percent survival of the trees, said Cordero.
