Tatu City tree planting tops 10,000

25 March

Tatu City and the Kamiti Water Resource Users Association have planted more than 10,000 trees in two years of cooperation. So far in 2020, the environmental partnership has planted 4,000 indigenous trees, in addition to 6,000 seedlings last year. The partnership was formed to preserve the Kamiti catchment area.

“We are fully committed to maintaining and improving the environment in and around Tatu City,” said Jacqueline Maigua, Tatu City’s Head of Urban Management. “We are pleased to partner with Kamiti Water Resource Users Association for a second year of record-setting tree planting.”

Kamiti Water Resource Users Association Chairman D.K. Njoroge commended Tatu City for “setting a good example for the future of humanity. The survival rate of the trees that were planted in 2019 was over 80%, which means that we are not only planting but growing trees. Our members appreciate everything Tatu City is doing to support the environment.”
