This is a place where man-made trees envelope the road. We found a spot to stop and take picture. Just be careful of yourself. Make sure the road is clear with cars before you do some selfies. Worth the stop.

At first, when we passed by, it is seem to be nothing special at all. It is like passing by in an ordinary place surrounded by tall trees. But then when we make our stop, that is the time that I appreciate the place. It is also a plus factor that our tour guide/driver knows the history of it. I... More

This is a man made forest about 2km of mahogany trees. Though it is not very significant in terms of scenery but it is a reminder how important to have greens in an island. The weather in the forest is cool compared to the outside. Try to buy some souvenirs there to support the locals.

We passed through here twice without stopping. It is just a forest. A well ordered large and fresh one. However it is really important that people in the Philippines are reclaiming areas for nature - so well done, keep it up!

The man-made forest of mahogany trees was originally planted to prevent landslide after previous deforestation and for that reason alone, it's now great to see the tall straight trees and the heights they've grown in just over half a century. The windy road through the forest is good and rather narrow in parts, so the driver must pay attention at... More

The Man Made Mahogany forest is a really good place to stop on the trip down the Loay Interior Road from Loay to the Chocolate Hills. We walked about 1 km down the dirt side road labelled Bilar which gave us some extra stretches and some cool fresh air.
