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.

sana hwag napagtripang putulin yang mga puno na yan. gandang tignan at talagang nakakatulong na pagtakip sa matinding init ng araw. speaking of canopy, pwedeng pwedeng atang maglagay ng capony walking facility dyan.

bro ronald, i sure hope so. that's a good idea - parang yung canopy walk sa cagayan de oro :-)

one of the best shot in this bohol set. i'm planning to be in bohol by end of may. pinag iisipan ko pa kung bohol or bantayan or malapscua island.
