The County Government of Nakuru yesterday launched a tree planting exercise targeting streets within Nakuru Municipality.
A team from the Department of Water and Environment led by Chief Officer Environment Kiogora Muriithi embarked on the exercise last evening, planting trees along Kenyatta Avenue in Nakuru town.
According to Mr Muriithi, the trees are part of the greening program that has been ongoing. In the last phase, trees were planted along Statehouse, Section 58, Naka and Free Area estates in Nakuru East sub County.
Mr Muriithi added that the trees will also make Nakuru a green city, making it friendly to the residents.
Other measures that the County Government has taken to beautify Nakuru town include rehabilitation of Nyayo gardens, purchase of waste bins and blocking herders from bringing livestock into the CBD.
The County Government is also in the process of rehabilitating Naivasha Municipal park.
