Epson Precision Philippines Inc. (EPPI) recently worked with the National Power Corporation (NPC) and the Malaraya-Malepunyo Watershed Protection Council (MMWPC) to plant about 4,000 seedlings at Mt. Malaraya-Malepunyo (Biak-na-Bundok) in Brgy. Talisay, Lipa City, Batangas last August 3.
EPPI president Kazuyuki Amano led the event, with over 190 volunteers from EPPI.
This year, EPPI was able to cover two hectares of land, planting about 4,000 seedlings of various trees that are indigenous to the Philippines, including narra, kupang, tibig, toog, and taluto. Every Epson volunteer was asked to plant a minimum of 20 seedlings.
The company expects a survival rate higher than the 88-percent result from last year?s tree-planting activity. The 4,000 seedlings planted this year was a 60-percent increase from the number of seedlings Epson planted last year.
