Last August 8 the local government unit of Asingan led by Mayor Heidee Chua participated in the celebration of Arbor Day.
The Arbor Day celebration is a nationwide mandate of the National Government allowing Filipinos to participate in environmental preservation by planting trees and other ornamental plants. It also requires every local government unit to conduct tree planting activities regularly.
This activity aims not only to help reforest denuded areas, but also to make the country a greener and healthier place to live in.
Mayor Chua said that environmental protection through planting trees is a major responsibility not just of leaders, but also of the entire constituency.
