ABSTRACT
In the past, the implementation of forest policies was challenged by corrupt leadership in Kenya who failed to control
tree cutting. The Tea Factories consume more wood fuel than the tea farmers could supply from their tea growing regions.
Consumption of wood fuel happens depite the fact that the rate of consumption cannot cope with the rate of tree replenishment.
There was need for research to establish the impacts of tea processing on the environment in Kandara Sub-County,
Kenya. It was therefore against this background that this research investigated the effects of tea processing using wood
fuel in Kandara Sub-County. Qualitative data was collected using questionnaires and analyzed in comparison to past studies carried out in the same field. The research findings indicated that the cutting of trees for wood fuel exceeded the rate of planting. The study recommends that the tea factories should explore cheaper alternative energy
sources and extensive free seedlings, or obtaining subsidized seedlings. The tea factories should engage tea farmers in a
program of continuous supply of wood fuel based on the crop production per farmer per year. Relevant organs should sensitize the community on the need to have agroforestry, with fast growing trees to close the gap and ensure sustainability of wood fuel business in the region.
