This is the third tree planting ceremony hosted by CAVS this year. The first event was in May during the University’s Annual Tree Planting Ceremony that saw about 15,000 trees planted. The second was in June to mark the World Environment Day when 3000 seedlings were planted.

Involvement of the students’ organizations such as Runway Environmentalist, Upper Kabete Environmental Forum, Environmental and Biosystems Engineering Students Association, and Kabete Campus Student Organization to mobilize the students ensured a high turnout.

Tree planting is one way of nurturing the environment – this is one of our core values. This exercise is also in line with the National Reform Policy in Forestry which requires active participation by all stakeholders in order to ensure the attainment of 10% forest cover in Kenya.
