Students plant trees for the climate in Kenya

Garden Kenia 2

Egerton university students as well as Kabarak university students are visiting trees they planted. Replanting trees is crucial in the Aberdares area: It’s located in Nyandarua County, Kenya. In the 160km long mountain range humans have contributed to the destruction of the forest.

Beside beeing important CO2 sinks, the replanted trees help against erosion and prevent the lost of soil, store water in the soil, produce oxigen O2, improve the micro-climate by cooling the air, offering shadow and protecting against the wind, and are home to birds, insects and other animals.
