A tree-planting activity was held by wireless services provider Smart Communications Inc. at the Ipo Dam watershed in Norzagaray, Bulacan, recently as part of a three-year program of the PLDT Group, with mobile communications company NTT DoCoMo of Japan, a SMART press release said.
In the Visayas, tree-planting activities have started in Cebu in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress-Visayas Regional Office, and in Iloilo, Negros Oriental, and Negros Occidental.

Tree-planting initiatives like the one in Ipo Dam watershed is part of the company’s effort to contribute to the reduction of global carbon emission, he added.
