In the partial experience of the negative effects of climate change, mass tree growing is being heavily campaigned for by the current government. Trees play a vital role in reducing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere by absorbing and storing carbon and using it in photosynthesis.

Kenya Forest Service leads in tree growing as the national producer of high-quality tree seedlings.

On Friday 19th May 2023, KFS conducted a plantation establishment tree planting activity in Mikaro beat of Geta Forest Station in Nyandarua County. In the activity that was heavily attended by Geta Forest CFA, 8000 tree seedlings were planted.

The CFA urged Kenyans to support the president towards the actualization of the 30% tree cover by planting and taking care of trees as the rains continue to pour heavily.

In its commitment to support KFS in tree planting and growing activities, Dedan Kimathi Foundation was represented by our communication team leader Dennis Mwangi; who offered free photography
