mas madaling tandaan ang mga ibon hehehe
very glad to be able to join the 1st "tree walk" of the Philippine Native Plants Conservation Society, an organization dedicated to the promotion and propagation of native species. for three hours, we explore the different areas of UP Diliman campus and visited 60+ native trees. some are lurking inside woodlands and garden patches dominated by exotic plants while others are in plain sight, but still unnoticeable to most passersby and motorists.
encountered native trees such as the buyaboy from Batanes. the leaves are use by the Ivatans to create raincoats and hats
native palm trees - taraw and endemic Manila Palm
native ficus trees, hawili and tangisang-bayawak. ficus trees are the lifeline of the forests, providing ample food to many species of birds and bats
salimbobog. they said that the flower of this tree is more beautiful than Cherry Blossom. can’t wait to see it when it blooms in summer.
the Philippine teak. can only be found in limestone forests of Batangas and Mindoro.
the beautiful shrub Leea guineensis (no local name) and more...
also learned interesting facts on already known native species,
mabolo is one of the many kamagong trees
love the flowers of botong. reminds me of Eywa...
