Things to consider:

Option to bring shovel
We will trek from the checkpoint to the site of the tree planting activity that covers a kilometer or more; depend on your group designation, since there are 3 sites for tree planting activity…
PEZA Checkpoint is situated at the boundary of the PEZA controlled property just after Barangay Alas-Asin…

We’ll post any updates on the itinerary from time to time…

Thank you…

A Call For Participation And Volunteers: Trees for Life

Dear MFPI Members and Friends,

On July 18, 2007, the Trees for Life Stewardship Declaration Ceremony will be held at the La Mesa Dam. This will coincide with the Presidential Proclamation Declaring La Mesa a Watershed Reservation.

I invite our members and friends to witness this ceremony. On this occassion, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo will formalize the Stewardship Status of MFPI. MFPI has been put to task to rehabilitate the forest cover of our critical watersheds, national parks, NIPAS, protection forestlands, mining rehabilitation areas, open and denuded lands and riverbanks.

The Trees for Life Project is a joint undertaking of the DENR and Green Army Foundation. Our former MFPI President Regie Pablo is working closely with them. Around 20 Million seedlings has been allocated nationwide by DENR and the planting sites have been pre identified. We just need to provide the manpower support to rehabilitate the areas.

Any organization affiliated or not with MFPI are encourage to participate in this project. Please coordinate with Mr. Regie Pablo. He can be reached through his mobile number 0917-8173443 or .

Furthermore, stewardship of this land is officially given to MFPI to care for and look after for a long period of time. it is imperative that you SEND at least one representative to come to this event so that further directions may be given to you as to the area that will be turned over to you for long term stewardship.

The program for the event on July 18, 2007 is indicated below.

Sincerely yours,

Dodi Principe
President – MFPI
