Description The continuous exploitation of our forest resources resulted to unabated losses of our indigenous, endemic and premium species. Most of these forest species are nowhere to be found. To counter this dilemma the government came up with a strategy under its priority agenda “Resource Conservation and Productivity Enhancement” to achieve strong positive impact to society and environment. Thus, the National Greening Program was conceived.
