Welcome to Better Globe Forestry

Better Globe Forestry Ltd (BGF) was incorporated in Kenya in 2004. It is part of The Better Globe Group from Norway, which focuses on the need to fight poverty by promoting massive tree-planting and sustainable agricultural programmes through microfinance schemes, educational programmes and water supply for rural communities. The company also publishes Miti, The Tree Business Magazine For Africa.

The mission of Better Globe Forestry Ltd is to make Kenya a greener, healthier and wealthier place in which to live, by focusing on the development of profitable, commercial tree plantations that will deliver environmental as well as humanitarian benefits.

Better Globe Forestry Ltd has a holistic and sustainable approach to solving desertification in Africa and is committed to extensive commercial tree-planting as part of its overall environmental and social mission.

The Better Globe Forestry Ltd's approach is holistic on account of four factors:

  • We realise that planting trees is caring about people.
  • We create jobs for local people, including a significant percentage of women.
  • We improve rural livelihoods through assistance in education and water supply.
  • We work in semi-arid lands that are not suitable for agricultural production.
