Cantung Forest Management Unit (KPH) representative Dani Prasetyo highly appreciated the planting by PT ITP. According to him, an ecosystem is very dependent on its environment, and the plants are needed primarily for oxygen function needed by humans.
"We hope that in addition to protecting the environment, it is also beneficial for the community, so they continue to maintain a beautiful and sustainable environment," he said.
