Tree seedling purchase and distribution

Tree seedlings were purchased from different tree nursery owners at a flat rate of Ksh 20/= per tree seedling. The tree seedlings were taken to different planting sites which have been decided by Nayibingi based on the decision made by planting site owners and Nayibingi. In institutions, pupils were supposed to dig planting holes and take care of the tree till when they can survive on their own. The community around also took the initiative and were supplied with tree seedlings to plant to their farms.
