Transport of illegal timber busted in Bustos town


CITY OF MALOLOS – Twenty logs of illegal timber were busted in Brgy. Bonga Menor in Bustos, Bulacan by the Philippine National Police monitoring team on January 4, 2024, Bulacan Environment and Natural Resources Office reported.

The captured Elf truck that was reported to have no cutting and transport permit has breached Section 68 of Presidential Decree No. 705 Series of 1975, commonly referred to as the Revised Forestry Code of the Philippines.

While the truck driver did not face any charges, the Elf truck containing the seized 20 pieces of illicit timber is still under the custody of Bonga Menor’s barangay office.

Meanwhile, Governor Daniel R. Fernando reminded the Bulakenyos that each individual has a part to play and a duty to fulfill in taking care of the natural resources.

“Lahat tayo ay may gampanin at may pananagutan sa ating likas na yaman kung kaya’t magtulungan po tayo upang mas mapaigting natin ang pagprotekta sa ating kalikasan,” Fernando said.

Also, BENRO Head Atty. Julius Victor C. Degala encourages the Bulakenyos to report any illegal activities that go against the campaign on protecting and preserving the environment and natural resources.

“Sana mahalin natin ang ating kapaligiran at likas na yaman. Siguraduhin natin na ang mga susunod na henerasyon ay makararanas din ng magandang lugar tulad natin kaya gawin natin ang tama, gawin natin ang dapat, at gawin natin sa lalong madaling panahon,” Degala said.
