20,000 trees at the NLEX
Officers of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) and Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC) celebrated MNTC Chairman Manuel Pangilinan’s birthday with the symbolic presentation of the 20,000th tree to highlight the completion of the “Greening the NLEX. 67 Varieties. 20K Trees” project.
Last year, MNTC pledged to plant 20,000 trees of 67 indigenous varieties along NLEX to mark MVP’s birthday. The vision to green NLEX was completed with the help of partners like SM Supermalls, Financial Executives of the Philippines, Philippine National Bank and some business editors in planting the committed trees.
