Municipality Tree: The municipal tree is the perennial balayong commonly called tindalo, the most common wood used for principal house posts in the locality.

Municipal Bird: Tagwati is a bird commonly seen in Asian countries found in places from India to the Philippines. Its bill is long and straight. The graduated tail of the male is longer in summer than in winter. Plumage is usually dull gray, or green above, with rufous crown and whitish or yellowish breast. The Tagwati is of special interest for its remarkable nest is made from growing leaves stitched together with vegetable fiber. Using its bill as needle, the female passes the fiber back and forth, knotting the nest and a purse-like structure is formed. Within this structure, a nest is built made of hard and fine grass. Here the eggs are laid.
