Follow our Tree Planting in Kenya
Kenya’s Kijabe Forest is a highland mosaic ‘Afro-alpine’ forest that used to be populate by trees, such as the East African pencil-cedar and African olive.
The forest is now just about 5,000 hectares, but a community of almost 200,000 people depend on it for water, wood, and agriculture.
Planting trees here will help protect this ecosystem, promote environmental education, and encourage sustainable lifestyle through seed collection and ecotourism.

The local community is encouraged to maintain sustainable livelihoods through seed collection and ecotourism.
Planting trees is aimed to return nutrients to the soil, improving yields for thousands of small farmers and protecting the local community's water supply.
This project focuses on protecting species such as the Colobus monkey and the African wild dog.
