Going Native!

Here are my recommendations for reforestation in the Sierra Madre, Pawpawan to Montalban, all endemic or indigenous in the Philippines: Katmon or dillenia philippinensis, a pioneer http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/326592/why-we-love-katmon Tibig or ficus nota, pioneer http://www.biofuelswork.com/RAIN/Storing.htm Kahoy-dalaga or massaenda philippica, pioneer http://www.indi-journal.info/archives/3174 Lipote or syzygium polycephaloides, pioneer http://pinoytrees.blogspot.com/2008/12/wonder-lipote.html Bakan or litsea philippinensis, pioneer http://erdb.denr.gov.ph/publications/denr/denr_v15b.pdf Toog or petersianthus quadrialatus (large tree) not pioneer but endangered http://philippineflora.wordpress.com/2009/08/11/philippine-rosewood-toog-tree/ Is-is or ficus ulmifolia, pioneer http://211.114.21.20/tropicalplant/html/print.jsp?rno=215 Balete or ficus balete, pioneer and good for ghosts Takip asin or macaranga grandiflora, pioneer http://www.indi-journal.info/archives/3053 Anubing or artocarpus ovatus, pioneer http://stuartxchange.com/Anubing.html Niog-niogan or ficus psuedoplalma, pioneer http://stuartxchange.com/Niyog-niyogan.html Pili or canarium ovatum, shade tolerant (second growth under trees), endangered http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pili_nut Malasalimae or hellicia rigidflora, pioneer Binukaw or garcinia binukaw, shade tolerant, fish sinigang! http://www.indi-journal.info/archives/3019
