The PMA has been allowed to cut 53 trees, including 39 pine trees, from June 24 to July 8 by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) to make way for a new building, according to Navy Capt. Cheryl Tindog, the academy spokesperson.

The new building is part of the 2014 master development plan, which the academy resumed after fresh funds were allocated for its infrastructure improvement.

The permit was approved on June 17 by Ralph Pablo, DENR director for the Cordillera.
