The activity started with an invocation followed by the reading and signing of the Pledge of Commitment.
Malanog and Police Executive Master Sergeant Larie Lumbab in behalf of Major Julius Garcia gave their inspirational messages.
Team Clarin under Lt. Eleazar Mellomida planted trees in Barangay Tubod.
Team Alicia under the leadership of Lt. Edcel Petecio planted trees in Barangay Putlongcam.
The seedlings comprised indigenous trees as well as various fruit-bearing and plantation trees..
The tree-planting sites were chosen through recommendations from the local government units and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
The planting activity was part of PNP’s core values on Pulis Makakalikasan (Pro-Environment) and guidance that aimed to protect and preserve mother nature through planting trees “for the next generation to come, that they may feel the bounties and serenity of Mother Earth.”
