Bohol Part Vl: Bilar Man Made Forest

December 2005

The forest is just along the highway, so, we stopped here for a picture taking only. It is said that the Man-Made Forest of Bilar is the largest man-made forest in the country. It was planted by the people of Bohol to sustain ecological balance and restore the wildlife habitat in the area which was threatened by forest depletion. It covers an area of 8.574 square kilometers.

Bilar Forest

A national reforestation program was launched in the early 1960's. Thousands of Mahogany seeds were planted in Bilar and Loboc.
