The Musafir Tree Planting project has started at Distant Relatives - Kilifi's eco - lodge & backpackers! The objective for now is 500 hard wood indigenous trees. The main species chosen for now is Mbamba Kofi (Afzelia quanzensis) also known as Mahogany. We're also trying Terminalia Espinosa, though much harder to propagate - will let you know how we go - any advice most welcome! For now 150 sexy little Mbamba Kofi seedlings are in recycled yoghurt bottles. In a couple months, the planting will begin!
