Agarwood, Investment with high return!
When we talked about investment, laging kasunod nyan ay magkano ang return? Yong monetary value baga ng investment.
Sa agarwood, aside from yong commercial value na huge ang return, may mas malaking return ito sa ating environment.
In other words, hindi lang yong bulsa mo ang matugunan nito bagkus higit ang environment. Paano?
Help protect the mother earth. Only 7% of wild Aquilaria trees produce Agarwood. This has caused and still is causing the unnecessary cutting down of wild Aquilaria trees in our Philippine forests as it is necessary to cut down the tree in order to see whether it is infected and produced Agarwood.
The cutting down of trees causes billions of tons of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) to be released into the air. About 20% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions are a result of deforestation. An improvement essential to the sustainability of the environment is the planting of native trees particularly Aquilaria, both to relieve the global shortage of trees for lumber, pulpwood and firewood, and as important sources of energy and income for the developing world.
Planting will help to reduce the effects of global warming. Your investment will of course, directly cause the plantation of new trees!
Get rid of taxes for idle lands. Convert your (make sure to be under your name) idle lands into Aquilaria Plantation to avoid additional real property tax on idle lands. (a) There is hereby imposed an additional real property tax on idle lands at the rate of FIVE PER CENT PER ANNUM based on the assessed value of the property as determined by the Provincial or City Assessor of the Province or City where the property is located, or by the Municipal Assessor in the case of idle lands as per Presidential Decree 1446.
