Although the new trend is catching on, not all people can afford to take part

 

Tree-hopping is gaining a foothold in Kenya, according to Thomson Reuters Foundation News report, which notes the trend towards relocating trees from a densely populated forest to a scarcely populated forest.

 

This is solving problems for farmers who have too much shade and others who don’t have any — in fact there are multiple benefits. “It will create a new home for birds, insects and other organisms, which contribute to improving soil fertility,” Laban Gitiba, a sub-county forest officer in Kerita village, told Thomson Reuters.

 

Unfortunately, the process is expensive and not an option for vulnerable populations. [http://news.trust.org]
