Seedballs Kenya - Tree seeds Packaging-

Our seedballs are a special blend of charcoal dust, nutrients and binders sourced from long dead acacia trees that are now giving life to a whole new generation of forests thanks to more than 35 combined years of Kenyan charcoal industry expertise from Chardust Ltd and Cookswell Jikos.

 

When direct seeding using KEFRI certified indigenous acacia tree seeds, you do not have to worry about birds, rodents or insects eating your seeds before the rains come.  Our biochar coating greatly increases their chance to germinate and grow!

THE DRYLAND TREE SPECIES

THE ACACIAS

 

Our favorite multi-use tree: The generic name ‘acacia’ comes from the Greek word ‘akis’, meaning ‘point’ or ‘barb’, these are an in-built self defense mechanism to protect themselves against browsers. All of these acacias provide the following uses:

 

Commercial Uses

Fodder - Foliage and seed pods provide food for wildlife, birds and livestock.

Apiculture - Acacia trees produce excellent bee forage.

Fuel - Very good quality firewood and charcoal.

Timber - The wood is typically hard and heavy in mature trees with a beautiful grain.

They can also be used to make poles and posts.

Medicine - Acacia trees are renowned for their use in traditional medicine in Kenya.

 

Eco-system services

Shade or shelter - Acacias provide some of the only shade in many parts of Kenya and are also nesting sites for birds and many insects.

Nitrogen fixing and Erosion control - All acacias fix atmospheric nitrogen and their excellent root systems help stabilize the soil.

Ornamental - The well-shaped decorative tree is a good candidate for keeping the natural look to amenity areas.

Boundary or barrier or support - Trees well suited to being planted as live fences and to beautify roadsides.  2-15m branching from base. Grows from 1,500-2,500min wooded grasslands and river valleys. Fast growing with green/yellow bark on young trees brown on old ones. Fuelwood, charcoal, tea from the bark and the pods are fodder for livestock and wildlife. Also an excellent source of forage for bees.
