Personnel of the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) planted about 2,000 non-fruit seedlings on the occasion of the Army school’s 65th founding anniversary and in support to the National Greening Program.
TRADOC Commander Brigadier General Herminigildo Francisco Aquino said the trees planted inside their camp are for the benefit of the next generation.
“Trees play an important role in our lives. They provide food and shelter, improve air quality and aid in climate control. Someday, the trees that we plant will benefit future generations of soldiers who will pass the portals of TRADOC,” Aquino stressed.
Varieties that were planted include Mahogany, Narra, Kupang, and Banaba.
