The forest cover of the region is still within the ideal ratio between agriculture and forestry which is 40 and 60 respectively. Today, the total forest area with cover went up to 1,522,340.53 hectares from 1,149,845 hectares in 2003. The increase in forest cover is primarily attributed to the active participation of public and private sectors in terms of tree plantation and planting activities including NGOs, POs and other stakeholders. To add, increase in public awareness helped in abating further destruction of the forest.

NATIONAL GREENING PROGRAM

On February 24, 2011 President Benigno S. Aquino III issued Executive Order No. 26 stressing the need to consolidate and harmonize all greening efforts such as Upland Development Program, Luntian Pilipinas and similar initiatives of the government, civil society and private sector under a National Greening Program. Hence, the National Greening Program became the priority of Region 02.

The program was implemented in the different field offices by engaging Local Government Units (LGUs), Peoples Organizations (POs) of CBFM and PACBRAMA, schools, religious and civic organizations, financial institutions, Irrigators Association, medical practitioners, other government agencies, non-government agencies, SIFMA holders, FLGMA holders.

The region has been very successful in the implementation of the different activities of the program. On seedling production, the region produced 105% accomplishment by POs enrolled under ENRMP. With the target of 1,797,000 they were able to produce 1,890,526 seedlings.

In addition, 317,075 seedlings were produced regionwide thru the initiative of DENR employees. On seedling procurement, a total of 605,255 seedlings were procured under ERDS within the year.

Forest Protection

The continuing Forest Protection and Law Enforcement and as further strengthened with the implementation of E.O. 23, there has been an effective campaign against illegal forest activities.  The significant decline on the volume of confiscations of illegal forest products and conveyances and filing of illegal logging cases against the perpetrators/violators of ENR Laws proved effective deterrent to would be forest law violators.

For the year, a total of 473.08 m3 of apprehended, seized and confiscated forest products and 54 units of conveyances, tools and equipment.  A total of 32 cases were filed, while the rest are under court litigations.

A total of 58.77 m3 of confiscated wood materials were donated to DepEd and 34.63 m3 to DSWD as directed under E.O. 23.  On Forest Fire Management, Prevention, Monitoring and Control, a total of 34 hectares of burned areas were detected.  Likewise, there were 11 chainsaws registered during the year in connection with the implementation of RA 9175.
