About Komaza

Komaza is an impact focused, business driven forestry company revolutionising African forestry by unlocking the potential for small-scale farmers to serve industrial wood markets. With entrepreneurial roots in San Francisco, California and operational headquarters in Kilifi, Kenya; Komaza have already planted 2 million trees with over 6,000 farmers, making them Kenya’s largest commercial tree planter. With a solid proof-of-concept and over 100 full-time employees, they are currently scaling at a rapid pace. 

 

Komaza is developing their innovative “micro-forestry” model with the goal of becoming Africa’s largest forestry company. They partner with rural farmers to plant woodlots which are managed collectively as a “virtual plantation.” Farmers contribute land and labour, and are paid a fair price for harvested trees. Komaza provides training, planting inputs, maintenance support, harvesting services, and a guaranteed market. By leveraging farmer land and labour, Komaza access effectively limitless land and plant trees for far less than big plantations – a powerful disruption to the traditional forestry business model.

 

Komaza is proud to be partnered with industry-leading investors in scalable impact, social enterprise, and East African business such as Novastar Ventures, Mulago and Hooge Raedt Social.
