International Day of Forests
March 21st was declared by the United Nations General Assembly as the International Day of Forests in 2012 to celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests. On this day, member nations are encouraged to undertake local, national and international efforts to organize activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns.
De La Salle University-Dasmariñas is considered home to over 1,300 trees both endemic and local. Apart from these, the University actively participates in greening programs to revitalize Philippine forests such as the One Million Trees and Beyond project spearheaded by De La Salle Philippines. It has also partnered with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources on planting activities in protected areas such as Mt. Palay Palay.
