The Philippines is blessed with a very high biodiversity, including the plants living in its remaining forest cover. Trees alone comprise about 3500 species. Just to research on a species a day would take about 10 years to finish all of just the trees. Then there are still the shrubs, herbs, ferns etc. Through this blog we hope to introduce you to some important plants in the forest before they completely disappear because of habitat destruction.

Quick Post! If you live in Fairview and has wondered what those silver leaved trees along Regalado and Mindanao avenues are, the answer is lumbang or Aleurites moluccana. The leaves are more silver right now because they are complimented by its white tiny flowers.
