it was a beautiful sight and inspiring that a man was able to convince others to think ahead in the 1950s when global warming was yet to be discovered as an international concern -and went to do the work in those days for the benefit of generations to come... something he didn't see in his day -a heroic and selfless...

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.

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
