1,000 Benguet Pines Planted in Ecological Recovery Effort

Camp John Hay, Baguio City: One thousand Benguet Pines were planted in two identified sites within the Camp John Hay forested area, near the Voice of America, on Friday, June 28, 2024, as part of John Hay Management Corporation’s (JHMC) celebration of the Annual Philippine Arbor Day.

This sustainability effort aims to contribute to the recovery and restoration of the ecological state of the forested area, which was damaged by forest fires earlier this year. While tree planting alone cannot completely stop climate change, this activity, when combined with other environmental measures, is a significant step towards a more sustainable future. 

Among the participants were President and CEO, Atty. Marlo Quadra and Vice President and COO Jane Theresa Tabalingcos who, through their on-hand involvement to the activity, set motivating examples for those who joined, including JHMC employees and their families and on-the-job trainees (OJTs) from Benguet State University (BSU), the University of Baguio (UB), and Saint Louis University (SLU).

Further, this also aligns with the corporation’s commitment to corporate social responsibility which aims to promote environmental stewardship.
