Bohol Bilar Forest - Mahogany's theme

Nope, I'm not referring to the old movie nor the theme song sung by Diana Ross. It's the envirnomental theme of Bilar's mahogany forest. Driving through kilometers of mahogany trees providing their canopy is a sight to behold. Planted over two decades ago by volunteer students and residents, the trees are priceless not just for their timber but for the shade they give, the sloping land they hold together, not to mention the fresh oxygen they provide. Sana, marami pang ganitong sa Pilipinas. At sana, hindi naman ito pagdiskitahan ng mga loggers.
