Ilocano Beginner Nature (Part 2)
The Philippines is rich with various types of plants, ranging from massive acacia trees to orchids and other flowering plants, and different types of grass. Philippine forests have thick vegetation from the forest floor all the way up to tree branches, providing shelter to local wildlife and preventing erosion.
Plants play a major role in the Philippine’s economy and lifestyle, especially in the provinces. Coconut trees and bamboo groves are an excellent supply of lumber and food, while rice, corn, and other farm crops are staple ingredients in various Filipino dishes.
