COMMITTED TO SAVE THREATENED NATIVE TREE SPECIES. Semiconductor company Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) and the Energy Development Corporation (EDC) have partnered to protect and propagate threatened native trees under EDC’s BINHI program. Seedlings of rare threatened native tree seedlings were planted in ADI’s General Trias site to allow them to grow into mother trees in a safe space. The BINHI program aims to preserve and propagate premium threatened native tree species.
