Abstract
for a long time, afforestation in Africa has focused On exotic tree species (Ojo and Iyamabo, 1977; kimariyo, 1990). However. Indigenous tree Seedlings are now increasingly being incorporated in Nurseries previously used mainly for exotic Seedlings. Afforestation is carried out mostly on marginal lands. The performance of trees on such sites highly depends on mycorrhizal association (Marx, 1980). The role of mycorrhizae in nurseries and later in the field was unknown in East Africa until 1928 when the first successful establishment of exotic pines was achieved as a result of artificial inoculation with mycorrhizal soil from Europe (Kaumi, 1980). This practice was recommended for pines and has since been used successfully in Kenya (Ivory and Munga, 1983; Mwanza and Obiri,1993).
