In Barangay Duale, Limay, Bataan, officials found approximately 41,000 board feet of illegally harvested trees, believed to be centuries old, valued at about P2.5 million. This operation was a joint effort by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Limay branch of the Philippine National Police (PNP). The discovered logs were abandoned, leading to no arrests at the scene. This event represents a significant step forward in the DENR's fight against unauthorized logging in the area. The Revised Forestry Code of the Philippines, outlined in Presidential Decree No. 705, governs logging operations and sets forth penalties for illegal activities, including fines and imprisonment.
