COTABATO CITY - Police personnel in six provinces of the Bangsamoro region simultaneously planted on Friday some 10,000 forest and fruit tree seedlings in open fields in support of the government’s environment-protection thrusts.

Brig. Gen. Allan Nobleza, director of the Police Regional Office-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region, led the tree planting activities around their headquarters in Camp SK Pendatun in Parang, Maguindanao del Norte.

Radio reports here and in nearby cities on Saturday morning stated that the provincial police directors in Maguindanao del Sur, Maguindanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur, Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi also led their subordinates in planting tree seedlings in denuded areas in the six provinces that comprise the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

“This activity is part of the Makakalikasan Program of the Philippine National Police," Nobleza told reporters via Viber message on Saturday morning.

He said PRO-BAR is thankful to the Ministry of the Environment, Natural Resources and Energy-BARMM for supporting the PNP’s reforestation initiatives in BARMM. 

MENRE-BARMM officials told reporters here on Saturday that no fewer than 10,000 forest and fruit tree seedlings were planted by members of the PNP in different provinces in the autonomous region last Friday.
