The source further revealed their intention to strategically partner with other stake holders in arresting the situation.
This timely intervention has become necessary and a step in the right direction after a recall of last years incidents of bushfire which engulfed some fields of ACI Construction and Coastal Restoration leading to loss of quite a number of trees in their respective zones.
