The City Government of Marikina has built a riprap around the uprooted acacia tree currently being rehabilitated.

City Hall employees also fixed the concrete bricks surrounding the more than a 100-year-old tree right in front of the Shoe Museum in Brgy. San Roque. It would be recalled that the tree was uprooted on September 14 by a tornado that hit the communities around Brgys. Sta. Elena and San Roque.

Mayor Marcy Teodoro has instructed the Parks Development Office (PDO)  and other departments in the City Hall to work together in reviving the tree, which is already part of the city's heritage having witnessed its transformation over the years.

Aside from its mission to help rehabilitate the so-called Century Tree, the PDO is also busy keeping Marikina’s environment clean and easy on the eyes. The PDO personnel are busy planting fire trees, trimming trees, cutting grass and undertaking clearing operations in the city, including disposing trash properly.
