TIBIG: Native Tree That Conserves Water

If you have a spring in your farm, plant several Tibig trees around it. The trees will help conserve water and sustain the the life of the spring.

Tibig produces a lot of fruits. We saw native pigs and deer relishing the fruits in the farm of Cong. Carlos Padilla Jr. In Dupax, Nueva Vizcaya during a visit some years back.

Tibig is found in many places in the country. We saw a particularly fruit tree in the farm of Ramon Uy in Don Salvador Benedicto in Negros Occidental a few years back.

Tibig is botanically known as Ficus nota. Birds also love to eat the ripe fruits and it is possible that the wildlings in the forest grew from the excreta of birds that ate the fruits.

  1. Thanks for the info. I will not cut our trees anymore which grows near the creek and spring. I’ll try to feed them, the fruits with our native pigs.
