Umali, Basil Castaño (co-editor), Joel Sayo (layout artist), Cel Tungol (Project Director) – with the objective of making a good reference guide about Philippine native trees for like-minded enthusiasts.

The Victor O. Ramos arboretum in Natividad, Pangasinan showcases more than 300 Philippine native trees and is the product of over two decades of hard work.
