FOREST MANAGEMENT SERVICE (FMS)

The major concern of this sector is to improve the technical and managerial expertise in the sustainable development of forest resources. It is responsible in the implementation of the National Greening Program which is to plant 1.5 billion trees in 1.5 million hectares of denuded lands in six-year period from 2011 to 2016. It is also responsible for the Protection of the remaining forest in Region 12 and to strictly implement the nationwide log ban on all natural and residual forests based on Executive Order No. 23 issued by President Aquino in February 2011. 

The sector is now implementing other major programs/projects like the Community-Based Forestry Program; Soil Conservation and Watershed Management; and the Forestland Boundary Delineation of the Protected Areas.

TAYO ANG KALIKASAN, MINDANAO LAUNCHING

AYO ANG KALIKASAN, MINDANAO LAUNCHING--

DENR Secretary Roy A. Cimatu together with his party graced the Mindanao Launching of Tayo Ang Kalikasan, the DENR-led People’s Environment Stewardship Movement on June 29 at SM City Activity Area in General Santos City.

With the theme, “Tayo Ang Kalikasan goes to Sarangani Bay”, Sec. Cimatu in his message emphasized that “the DENR need the help of everyone to save and protect the Sarangani Bay and the many wonders that the island of Mindanao has to offer”.

He encouraged the need for active participation as we take care of the environment. And, that while Mindanao’s riches have yet to be utilized to their full potential, everyone has to be vigilant of the threats including illegal logging, threats of leaks of toxic substances from mines, wildlife poaching, overfishing, and the improper sewage and solid waste disposal.

Sec. Cimatu also called for us to work in order to empower our fellow Filipinos to take to heart the need to manage our natural resources and use them properly. (MMAdam, MMaulana & JSetenta)
