Fernando Gonzalez unveils ‘Tokhang’-style tree-planting


Albay 3rd district Rep. Fernando Gonzalez has taken the concept of “Tokhang” to his tree-planting efforts. And it actually makes perfect sense.

“The new approach to tree planting (fruit bearing trees and special varieties of hard wood trees) is the HOUSE TO HOUSE approach,” the House politiko said on his Facebook.

“Rather than just distributing large number of seedlings at random to recipients which most of the time end not being planted or if planted end improperly planted and unattended and lost,” added Gonzalez, who also posted photos of his plan in action, particularly in Guinobatan.

Needless to say, local folk need not fear this door-to-door activity.
