Agroforestry provides many benefits to both farmers and landscapes in Kenya. For example, timber trees grown on farms have the potential to provide income for farmers as well as allowing for biodiversity conservation in the landscape. This study was conducted in the coffee agroforestry systems around Mount Kenya. The purpose of this study was to determine how much these coffee agroforestry systems contribute to the total potential native diversity of tree species across Potential Natural Vegetation Zones, which provide an estimate of how much native tree diversity is possible in the landscape. Specifically, the study looks at how timber trees fill this role, as well as how much exotic tree species contribute to the composition of tree cover in the landscape.
