THE Kenya Forest Service plans to plant 130 million trees this year. Senior assistant director Jim Okuto said this will conserve the environment. He was speaking at a ceremony to mark the World Day to Combat Desertification in Mwea on Tuesday.
Okuto said that the KFS targets farm land for tree planting since the govern- ment does not have enough gazetted land for forestation. “We are working with groups to plant trees,” Okuto said. He said plans are under way to increase forest cover in major water towers.
