The Department of Environment and Natural Resources-National Capital Region (DENR-NCR) donated bamboo saplings to Manila to help boost the city's green spaces, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

DENR-NCR regional executive director Jacqueline Caancan turned over the plants to Manila Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan on Monday.

In a post on Tuesday, the agency said the donated bamboo saplings consisted of 55 Iron Bamboo or Ferrocalamus and 50 Thailand Bamboo or Bambusa dolichomerithalla.

“The plants would help the city enhance its ‘green spaces’ and provide the people with cleaner air and water, and reduce flooding among others,” the DENR NCR’s post reads.

Meanwhile, Caancan said they were assisted by the Ecosystems Research and Development Bureau of the DENR and the DENR Calabarzon in sourcing the appropriate bamboo saplings that may be planted in the city.

Domagoso thanked DENR-NCR for being the city’s partner for the environment.

“Ilalagay po natin ito sa may Liwasang Bonifacio para lalo nating paramihin ang mga 'green spaces' sa ating lungsod (we will put these at the Liwasang Bonifacio so we could propagate more green spaces in the city),” Domagoso said.
