TREE LIBRARY PROJECT
SAN ROQUE INITIATIVE: SAVING PHILIPPINE EAGLES
GROW-A-TREE FOR THE SAN ROQUE WATERSHED (Support to the National Greening Program)

This project supports the objectives of the National Greening Program by adopting a 500-hectare portion of the San Roque watershed in five-year duration in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), NPC and San Roque Power Foundation Inc. (SRPFI). The project’s primary components include seedling production, socially-mobilized tree planting activities, plantation establishment and maintenance.

From the date of project inception in 2011, hired planters and about 5,794 volunteer-planters from 27 different agencies participated in the annual tree planting activities and planted a total of 255,409 seedlings in a 510-hectare area within the San Roque Watershed Area with survival rate of 79 percent.  The five-year project was completed on August 2015 with annual accomplishment summarized below:
