Grow A Tree Save The Future

Grow A Tree Save The Future Transparent

How it started?
Began as a wild idea after the city of Cagayan de Oro experienced Sendong last December 17, 2011.

How to do it?

We believe that massive tree planting from CDO river to Bukidnon area, especially in the buffer zone of Mount Kitanglad Range, can control the heavy rainfall from the mountains going to CDO


To date, the Grow A Tree Save The Future Movement has planted thousands of tree seedlings along the riverbanks of the Cagayan de Oro river as well as its nearby areas.

GlobalChips and HP donate 1K seedlings for Taguanao Watershed

GlobalChips and HP Philippines has donated 1,000 Seedlings for Taguanao Watershed rehabilitation.

GlobalChips Technologies, in partnership with HP Philippines Corp., recently donated 1,000 Gold Tree seed lings for the Watershed Rehabilitation project of Rotary District 3870 and the City Government of Cagayan de Oro.
Taguanao Seedlings
Our city has been experiencing a lot of floods during the rainy seasons and this project of the Rotary, led by Rotary District Governor Rhia Rita Abalos ,  aims to improve our degrading natural resources by conducting an Inter-district tree planting contest on Dec. 13, 2008. Each Rotary Club of District 3870 will be tasked to plant the seedlings and the club with the most number of surviving seedlings at a given period will receive a prize.

The turn-over of the seedlings were also attended by Engr. Mario V. Batar, City ENRO, as well as officials of the City Government and members of the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro District 3870.

Edward Dizon, Bernard Chua and Martin Diez represented HP Philippines in the turn-over of the seedlings. Rotarian and GlobalChips General Manager William Malagar presided the turnover ceremony.
