He urged the group to plant more rubber trees through  RAJTREE because “it will give livelihood to the people, income generating source to the government and will save the environment.”

“This RAJTREE is for you, for Sibugay, for the people and for the benefit of all,” Jalosjos stressed.

Timuay Fernando Mudai of RT Lim municipality thanked Gov. Jalosjos for inviting the CBFM Federation. He said that planting rubber trees will give livelihood to the people, a great help also to the government and the environment.

“We Subanons...our paradise is the forest. We want the forest so that deers and wild pigs will come back.  We should plant more trees so that good things will come back to us. Let’s help each other preserve and protect the forest and go back to nourish and nurture the earth that gives us life,” Timuay Mudai said. —  Allen Abastillas
