Illegal logging is more than likely the culprit that put the Philippines on the list of 10 Most Threatened Forests in the World by the non-profit organization, Conservation International. However, with the tree planting record set last Wednesday, February 25th, the Philippines may be on the right track to regain some footing towards recovering from the ignominious distinction.

7,000 Filipinos set a world record in Camarines Sur by simultaneously planting 64,096 trees in 15 minutes, as certified by the Guinness Book of World Records. The mass planting is part of a government funded reforestation program.
