Factors that favour the growth of natural forests on the slope of mount in Kenya are;

  • The area receives high rainfall throughout the year that provides water for growth of trees.
  • The area has cool climate/ moderate temperature that support a wide variety of tree species.
  • The area has deep/rich volcanic soils that provide proper anchorage/nutrients to support trees.
  • The area is protected government zone/gazette forest that prevents human encroachment allowing trees to grow without interference.
  • The area has steep slopes that discourage agriculture hence growth of trees flourish.
