History of Tarlac, Philippines
- Source: Verbatim from the LGU of Tarlac Province
Records of the Past: Several accounts show that Tarlac was once a thickly-forested area where tribes of nomadic Aetas thrived. The name "Tarlac" was drawn from a talahiblike weed called "Matarlak" by the Aetas. Tarlac’s name first figured in written history as a praesidio or military port designated with the task of defending communities from the frequent lowland raids of the Negritos and Balugas. Tarlac was the last province in Central Luzon to be created by the Spanish colonial government and was inaugurated as a regular province on May 28 of 1873 with Don Juan Guillen as its first politico-military governor. History also reveals that initially, Tarlac belonged to the provinces of Pampanga and Pangasinan. Tarlac was among the first to revolt against the Spaniards, being one of the "eight rays of the sun in the Philippine flag" the "terranos de guerra". Officially the revolution in Tarlac started on January 24, 1897, the so-called "Cry of Tagumpay". The town of Tarlac became the seat of the Aguinaldo government from June 21 to Nov. 10, 1899. This was a few months after Malolos, Bulacan was abandoned by General Emilio Aguinaldo as the seat of the Philippine Republic. Tarlac Cathedral was the site of the Philippine Revolutionary Congress, after its transfer from the Barasoain Church in Malolos.

Natural Resources of Tarlac, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power. We have too many black outs.
