THE PHILIPPINE Coconut Authority (PCA) targeted to plant 118,500 coconut seedlings province wide by the end of October this year.

This formed part of the massive tree replanting program to replace coconut trees damaged by Supertyphoon Yolanda in 2013.

PCA Capiz manager Jeffrey Delos Reyes said that about 757 coconut farmers were tapped for the program on a cash-for-work basis, which also formed part of the government’s assistance to farmers whose livelihood were affected.

“The program covers a hectare for each farmer,” Delos Reyes said, adding that some of the seedlings were sourced out from the neighboring provinces.

The PCA official noted that the coconut trees affected by Yolanda are becoming productive again.

Based on records, Yolanda has damaged a big number of coconut trees, as follows: 668,429 totally damaged; 974,261, heavily damaged; 739,725, moderately damaged; and 175,032, slightly damaged.

The totally damaged coconut trees, those which are crownless or had been broken or fallen down, are also processed by PCA and some businessmen into coco lumber to supply the growing demand for coco lumber for post-Yolanda reconstruction and rehabilitation. (Alex Lumaque)
