Kenya plants 20 millions new trees

An important step against deforestation

27-04-2016 by redazione

The Government of Kenya has decided to plant 20 million new trees to combat deforestation.
The forest resources of the country has suffered serious damage, especially from 1970 to 1990, mainly due to the production of wood and charcoal.
The destruction of forests still represents a very serious problem. More than 8% of the 30 thousand square kilometers of Kenya's tree cover has been lost from 2001 to 2014.
The initiative of the Government was created to start to restore the presence of trees, especially in areas montane.Gli trees will be planted around Mount Kenya and in the highlands, the places rich in rivers and freshwater lakes.
The campaign to plant new trees is part of a broader strategy to increase the forest cover, for the restoration of degraded land and to protect the habitats of many species, where live birds and mammals in danger of extinction. Planting new trees also serves to stem climate change.
The local community organizations will commit to plant new trees in order to restore the ancient forests by placing native trees.
It also aims to improve food security by planting trees on farms to restore soil fertility, to shade the crops and increase fruit production.
It is a project of vital importance to the people of Kenya, for the destruction of forests, combined with climate change, has led to a decrease in rainfall and an increased soil erosion.
