Moratorium on cutting, transport of logs asked

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Northeastern Mindanao (Caraga Region) have recommended to Environment Secretary Jose L. Atienza Jr. for the imposition of a moratorium in the cutting and transporting of trees in the southern part of Surigao del Sur to give way to the complete rehabilitation of major roads which were damaged by logging trucks and incessant rains.

The move was contained in the report of the DENR before the start of the Caraga Conference for Peace and Development (CCPD) that was presided over by Butuan City Bishop Juan de Dios Pueblos at the Bishops Palace in Barangay Ampayon, this city.

Northeastern Mindanao DENR Regional Executive Director Edilberto S. Buiser, who presented a brief report to the CCPD about what the DENR has done in pursuit of its objectives said "all efforts are being done to find practical solutions to stop the relentless cutting of trees inside the timber concession area of the moribund PICOP Resources Inc. (PRI)."

It was learned that Surigao del Sur Gov. Vicente T. Pimentel Jr. made a request to the DENR last May 14 to declare a moratorium on cutting and transport of forest products within the 2nd district of the province to give way for the rehabilitation and construction of roads. (Manila Bulletin)
