The Forestry Society of Kenya was registered in 1970 to offer a forum for discussion among professional foresters and other persons interested in forestry development and environmental conservation. The society also creates a platform where foresters sit together and share their experiences, new trends in their career and they discuss ways of improving the forestry sector.
Currently the society is looking forward to promote professionalism and well being of Kenya’s forestry sector through strengthened professionalism in research and policy to influence conservation and management of forests. The society also contributes to sustainable and effective forest management through research projects and publications. To achieve all these, the society elected its leaders on April 15th 2010 where John Mbaya was elected as the Chairman of the society, Ann Bora the secretary and Kepha Wamichwe Treasurer. They will serve for a 2 year term.
