Singapore trades in chocolate and so many other natural products, the Philippines used to and it will again. One hundred trees a year along with 100 of another producer, 100 of another and another and another can bring diversification meaning a daily harvest of something of value each day of the year. Local processing avoids green house emissions associated with transporting to a central processing factory and keeps the value-add at the grassroots, eradicating poverty. There are 42,005 barangays (villages) in the Philippines. Potentially, the agroforestry industry will become the largest national industry.
