Despite being man-made, and despite being accessed from a well-paved modern road, a ride through this forest gives one the feeling that it has been there for a long time. The sun hardly penetrates through the dense tree cover. If one is lucky and no cars are passing, a photo of oneself standing in the middle of the road would... More

We passed by the road of this man-made forest on the way to Carmen. Our driver guide said the trees were over 50 years old. We took pictures here at the middle of the road and admired the dense forest.

Unless the driver points it out you are there, you wont even notice. Really not much to see. Just drive though on the way somewhere else.

Its just a road running through a man made forest that is around 50 years old. The trees were planted by university students through a program initiated by Imelda Marcos from what I was told. Nice forest and good for a few pics.

This is not much of an attraction in itself, but is a nice place to stop on the way to or from the Chocolate Hills. It is a cool shady spot that the road passes through and is worthy of a few minutes of your time. Nice, but don't plan a day around it.

Drove through here on our way to see the hills. Was nice to drive through and was very impressive but would not have travelled far to see it by itself. Glad I have seen it!

The Mahogany forest impresses by the idea itself: when you thing what the great job was done. But as a piece of nature... it seems dead and even horrible. Not worth to visit it specially, but you’ll drive through it on the way to Chocolate Hills

This is a nice place to take pictures, especially if you're creative. However, it may be a challenge because this is found on the middle of a road. It's a couple of kilometers worth of mahogany trees which makes it interesting because it's man made.

This is was just part of the road on our day trip. It reminded me a little of home as we have an area that looks like this - tall trees on both sides of the road. If it had not been explained what this was you could have missed it.

Not much to see at all, even if you have your own transport, which we did. The forest does offer a small respite from the intense sun, but other than that, not much to see except trees!
