Komaza is revolutionizing African forestry by unlocking the potential for small-scale farmers to serve booming wood markets. By combining high-scale operations with digital intelligence, we are currently planting commercial-grade forests at a rate of over 1 million trees with 5,000+ new farmers per year, making us Kenya’s largest industrial tree planter. We hold the only sustainable blueprint for meeting Africa’s $30B wood supply crisis – by leveraging farmers’ contribution of land and labor, Komaza can access nearly limitless land and establish a hectare of trees for far less than big plantations.
We have been recognized with numerous awards and investments, including The Climate Policy Initiative, The Nature Conservancy, Forbes, and Novastar Ventures.
About the Team
After more than a decade of laying the business’ foundations with Komaza’s Coastal operations, Komaza has recently expanded its small-scale forestry model to Central Kenya. Central Kenya represents a new type of operating model for Komaza, where unlike Coastal Kenya, small scale forestry has existed for decades and farms and farmers are very different. The Central Kenya team is leading the way in developing this complementary small scale forestry business model, which will be the foundation for all future Komaza expansions to similar regions.
The Central Kenya team is concurrently defining the long term business model and strategy for Central Kenya whilst also running several pilots across the forestry value chain to accelerate learnings and enable fast and profitable growth. The longer term ambition is to build a multi-million dollar turnover business unit and set the foundation for Komaza to scale to the rest of Kenya and then Africa.
