Kenya: KFS, Base Titanium plant trees to curb deforestation

By Bisola Adeyemo

The Kenya Forest Service (KFS) in collaboration with Base Titanium Limited plants trees to combat land degradation and deforestation in Kenya.

The two agencies, on Friday, planted 23,000 tree seedlings in Sierra Leone part of Maasai Mau forest in Narok South Sub County.

Leading the planting exercise, Narok South Deputy County Commissioner Felix Kisalu, said already 3.5 million seedlings have been planted in the forest land since people were evicted from the forest two years ago.

Kisilu said many organizations are voluntarily involved in the forest land to plant trees which has made the work easy.

He reiterated that the government has employed 20 community scouts to man the forest land who control the cutting of grass in the forest land.
