Abstract
The first forest officer in Kenya was appointed in 1902 (Logie and Dyson, 1962) Earlier travellers had reported that in certain pants of the country the destruction of forests was proceeding rapidly (von Hahnel, 1894) and the first obj.ective was therefore to reserve sufficient of the existing forest for the future needs of the country. Substantial areas on the main mountain masses had been reserved by 1909 but .even today the process cannoi1: be said to be complete and gazetted foreSits only cover 3 per cenrt of Kenya. In some cases such as on the easrt of ,the Aberdares, forest destruction had gone too high up the hills before the remaining forest was reserved.
