Abstract
The first forest officer in Kenya was appointed in 1902 (Logie and Dyson, 1962) Earlier travelers had reported that in certain parts of the country the destruction of forests was proceeding rapidly (von Hohnel, 1894) and the first objective 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 cannot be said to be complete and gazette forests only cover 3 per cent of Kenya. In some cases such as on the east of the Aberdares, forest destruction had gone too high up the hills before the remaining forest was reserved.
