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.

This was on our way to the Chocolate Hills. It's nothing that great but feels nice driving through it. Probably more fun riding through it on a bike.

Just a quick stop at the man-made forest for picture-taking. We had fun taking pictures like we were in the Forbidden Forest (Harry Potter). You can also take pictures in the middle of the road but just watch out for the passing cars, there are no really sidewalks. Trees are planted near to each so they'll grow upright competing for...

There's not much too see in this Man made forest since all you can see are mahogany trees, however, one cannot dismiss the fact that this must be one of the many great things Boholanos did for mother nature. Its free, so why not take a chance to visit and appreciate it. Its picturesque for me coming from a place... More

First, if your jaded by the Forests of North America, Or Europe, you will wonder why the Excitement for this Forest. A man-made Forest that was planted a little over 50 years ago. Once vast areas of the Philippines were tree covered, Cut to clear, land for farming, sold as lumber... or local needs as building materials. So Deforestation is... More

Yes, I was among the first who planted trees in the area. I was a boy scout in 1969 when I planted my first tree. in my college days, I presided a group (YCSC) that did much planting of trees(not only in Loboc). We just want to do our share to keep our planet on the balance. Please plant a... More

If you're traveling here by van or car, I think this place is not so amusing but we went here using a motorbike and this has become our most favorite road in Bohol. We were completely excited everytime we passed this road, seemed like passing through a cool air tunnel, where's the giant aircon? We really love this place hoping... More

Not really an attraction in itself. Best (simply) passed through when going to or coming from Chocolate Hills. Pretty cool though what Bohol did planting all those mahogany trees.

The temperature in this part of Bohol somehow dropped because of the trees. We took pictures in the middle of the road to have the trees as backdrop not realizing the danger in the highway. But the drivers cooperate by stopping and allowing the tourists to take pictures
