Hi, I am currently working on my architectural thesis. I already went to PENRO, and a forester said “cutting of trees in private property is allowed as long as the tree is disturbance to the construction of the building.” - (this applies to those who have permit issued by DENR). I just wanna ask, what law can be used to justify his statement? Thanks in advance!
