Campaign to save the Mindoro pine trees

MINDORO: The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Tuesday said that a total of four hectares have already been planted with Mindoro pine trees as the department continues to seek measures to save the said endangered variety of pine tree.

Through the help of Alangan Mangyans, an organized Mangyan community in the area, about 2,244 Mindoro pine rooted marcots are now planted with technical assistance from the Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (Penro) technical personnel.

Mindoro pine previously covered about 5,000 hectares of the forest reserve. In 1997, the remaining Mindoro pine forest was only 700 hectares and continued to diminish due to forest fires. It used to thrive on the mountain ranges of Abra de Ilog, Mamburao, Sta. Cruz, Sablayan and Calintan in Occidental Mindoro.

World conservationists included the Mindoro pine in the list of flora and fauna for priority protection under the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources’ Red List of Threatened Species and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna.

In 2005, the DENR office in Occidental Mindoro took steps to combat the destruction of the remaining endangered pine species. The Penro initiated information campaigns that prompted people to get involved in the protection and preservation of the Mindoro pine.

The remaining stands of Mindoro pine can be found in Sta. Cruz, Occidental Mindoro, within Mount Paragpagan Forest Reserve in Barangays Pinagturialn and Barahan. Though native to the island province, Mindoro pine can also be found in Zambales up in the north.

The Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) on August 8, 2006 launched the DBP Forest Project, which involved mass production of Mindoro pine marcots as planting materials for its targeted 50 hectares of Mindoro pine plantation.

DENR Secretary Lito Atienza said that "this endeavour to save the remaining stands of Mindoro pine and to reproduce more of it through marcotting is, without a doubt, an essential element of a national strategy to adapt to climate change and mitigate its ill effects on humankind by growing more of our indigenous tree species."

"Planting trees is hugely beneficial to the world in the face of accelerating climate change. There is now a strong international scientific consensus that human activity is causing global warming and that a substantial reduction in the planet’s forest cover over recent centuries is a major contributor to this climate change," Atienza added.
