A FACEBOOK post of a domain dissident has picked up footing via web-based networking media after it called attention to a continuous earth-balling of 934 mangrove trees in Dumanjug, Cebu to make ready for a street enlarging and flood relief venture. 

Legal advisor and condition lobbyist Gloria Estenzo Ramos posted at 8:49 a.m. Friday, May 31, 2019 photographs of the earth-balling of the mangroves. Earth-balling is the way toward moving a tree by uncovering the earth and the roots in a round shape, leaving the vast majority of the root framework undisturbed and unblemished. 

Ramos, VP of Oceana Philippines, a universal sea protection and promotion association, in her post, scrutinized the choice of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to concede the Cebu fourth District Engineering Office of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in Brgy. Poblacion, Dalaguete, the license to earth-ball 934 mangrove trees in Brgy. Tapon, Dumanjug, Cebu. 

"By what means can DENR issue an earth-balling grant for mangroves? I couldn't accept what I saw! Just IN THE PHILIPPINES!!!! furthermore, for flood moderation daw—di ba (don't) mangroves give the best support against tempests that people couldn't want to imitate?" her post read. 

She at that point required an "examination and responsibility for those contriving to obliterate the mangroves in Dumanjug," which, as indicated by her is a piece of the Tañon Strait Protected Seascape and secured by the Expanded National Integrated Protected Areas System Act. 

The post additionally demonstrated a photograph of the board of the DENR-Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (Cenro) of Argao, Cebu issued earth-ball grant for 418 bungalon, 26 pagatpat and 490 bakawan (mangrove) trees discharged to the DPWH on Feb. 11, 2019. 

Anecito Aquino, leader of the Cenro-Argao, disclosed to SunStar Cebu that the temporary worker of the DPWH conformed to the necessities set for the issuance of the earth-balling license; subsequently they had no real option except to issue such. 

"Every one of the records, every one of the prerequisites were fulfilled by the workplace (DPWH) before the DENR issued the license. Truth be told, before the issuance of that license, there was a leeway or underwriting from the distinctive concerned barangays and regions. In this way, we had no real option except to issue the license," he said. 

As indicated by him, the venture attempted by the DPWH is for street augmenting, and the development and upkeep of flood relief structures and development of the Brgy. Tangil-Tapon seawall, under President Rodrigo Duterte's Build Program. 

"The reason for the DPWH is to enlarge (the street) for the wellbeing of the drivers," he said. 

In the rules issued by the DENR in the preparing and issuance of grants on the expulsion and migration of trees influenced by DPWH ventures, the DPWH must present (an) a proper foundation plan with tree diagramming, (b) fitting ecological freedom, (c) support from the concerned neighborhood government units, and (d) suitable Land Tenure Instruments (LTI) for tree cutting inside woodland lands. 

"Prior to the execution of the task, there was a designing examination, I am certain, (out and about) broadening. There's an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) issued by the office. In the meantime, there was a meeting to prune," Aquino included. 

Be that as it may, Ramos, in her post, scrutinized the need to evacuate the mangroves for flood alleviation when she considered mangroves the best cradle against tempests. 

Aquino said that with the DPWH and DENR as planning organizations, it is unavoidable once in a while that there are a couple of penances for national advancements. 

"Ang nakabutang didto is for the national intrigue man ang venture. In any improvement, there will be a few penances," he said. [What was composed there (in the board) is the undertaking is for the national interest.] 

He at that point clarified that one of the conditions for the issuance of the grant was to have moderating measures for conceivable flooding, to exchange the mangroves close to the region of Tapon and to supplant any harmed mangrove in the proportion of 1 is to 5, inside a half year after the earth-balling. 

"We will ensure that they will pursue this," he said. 

Tapon Barangay Captain and Dumanjug Association of Barangay Captains President Vicente Fernandez said in spite of the fact that he isn't absolutely responsible for the endeavors in his barangay, he sees the task as valuable to the general population. 

"No, they didn't look for our assent for that. We don't have beach front waters. What they do is go to the district since the region has the beach front waters. They will request the grant there," he said in Cebuano. 

"However, at that point kung tagaan ka'g grant, the earthball ibutang sa pikas, kay mi issue man ang DENR nga mas proficient kay nato, mas maayo siguro nang planuha," he included. (Be that as it may, at that point on the off chance that you were given a license, the earth-balled trees will be set in another zone. Since the DENR issued it and they're more proficient than we are, at that point I surmise that is a superior arrangement.) 

Fernandez is additionally an individual from the top managerial staff of the Tañon Strait Protected Area Management gathering. 

SunStar Cebu presently couldn't seem to get the side of the Cebu fourth District Engineering Office of the DPWH as of this composition.
