Kenya is a country that can be found on every animal lover’s travel bucket list. Its abundance of wildlife is something you need to experience first-hand to believe it. Countless tour operators tempt you to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime nature safari with them – and yes, you should give in to the temptation.

While you travel, let us plant trees for you. It helps the environment, the local population, and it doesn’t cost you a single Cent. Here is why and where we are reforesting Kenya.

Why We Are Reforesting Kenya

31% of the world’s land mass are covered in forest (Earth Policy Institute, 2012). Kenya, however, is a country with as little as 6.1% forest cover (Mongabay).

This makes Kenya one of the least forested countries in the world. Tanzania, Kenya’s direct neighbor, boasts a forest cover of about 40%.

Time to do something about it! (About reforesting Kenya. Let’s not chop down trees in Tanzania.)

In addition to increasing the forest cover in Kenya, which the entire planet benefits from, reforesting Kenya has various others environmental and social benefits to it.

Environmental Benefits of Reforesting Kenya

One fact to bear in mind when booking your holidays in Kenya: All land-based animals in the country depend on trees to survive. Whether you’re looking out for rhinos, lions, cheetahs, giraffes or majestic elephants – none of these species would survive without trees. No trees -> no life -> no wildlife safaris.

Which is why we took to reforesting Kenya in autumn 2018. Besides planting trees for tuskers, our reforestation efforts benefit a huge variety of wildlife, including lions, rhinos, cheetahs, leopards, zebras, antelopes, giraffes and whole lot of others.

Furthermore, trees prevent land erosion, and are hence the most efficient weapon against desertification. And, even better, planting trees brings along several social benefits as well.

Social Benefits of Reforesting Kenya

Not just the Kenyan environment benefits from our reforestation efforts. In good old Click A Tree tradition we ensure the local community profits from our engagement as well. When planting trees in Kenya, we mainly work with volunteers such as scholars on environment-focused master studies. We also include local schools in our reforestation projects, to educate the youngest in our society on the importance of the environment and nature conservation.

Where in Kenya B’n’Tree Plants Trees

In cooperation with partners Click A Tree is reforesting areas in and around Nairobi as well as the Masai Mara.

You surely have heard of the Masai Mara as wildlife watcher’s paradise, haven’t you? Thanks to your fabulous support for B’n’Tree we can ensure it remains that way for years and decades to come.

Reforesting Nairobi helps to reduce air pollution, decrease the Earth’s surface temperature in and around the city and create a greener, healthier place to live for millions of people.

    Sign up to use Ecosia as your search engine if you havn’t already – they put all of their advertising revenue towards tree planting projects around the world. They have planted over 50 million trees just by people searching the web. It’s free and super effective. http://www.ecosia.org

      Thanks Shubham, great advice. At B’n’Tree, we’ve been using Ecosia since over two years now… sensational to see how things have developed.

      Just one note: They don’t invest all their revenue into planting trees, but 80% of their profits. (Which is much better than any other search engine.)

        Hello Chris, they have nearly 50 employees. They need an office, taxes/fees, monthly salary, equipment, and so on. 80 % is much better than nothing.

      Not 50 Million trees, but the actual counter shows 78.104.641 trees. Very good.

      Hi Mueni,

      Thank you very much for your message, and great to hear you and your friends have challenged yourselves to such a noble cause! Thumbs up!

      Unfortunately, I fear we’re the wrong people to talk to here, since we only work with full-time employees. However, I’m confident you can find a worthwhile initiative near you, and wish you all the best for that.

      If you like, please post a few photos of you planting trees on our social media channels, we always love those.

      And, of course, feel free to plant further trees via clickatree.com to complete the 300.

      Thanks Mueni – stay awesome!

      Best regards,

      Chris
