While tree planting is important, tree growing is more important. Dedan Kimathi Foundation is growing more than 2.5 million trees in public spaces nation wide.

In most of the spaces, the trees are growing well with a 90% plus survival rate.

Above are photos of Pinus patula and cypress trees planted in 2021 by DKF in collaboration with Kenya Defense Forces in Mutamaiyu Secondary School. The trees were adopted by the school environmental club and grown to this great height. DKF remains focused to keep the tree growing progress positive by encouraging trees adoption by clubs and students /pupils.
