Ndii amesema trees and livestock are the best investment

I posted this thread here on ktalk but some elders walinikemea sana.

A 10yr old eucalyptus under irrigation = 5k.

1 acre in 10 years = 10,000,000.
100 acres in 10 years = 1bn.
Your neighbours don’t complain? Mine swore to kill me - considering they are farmers. I see that Ndii is saying that it doesn’t deplete water in the soil but I’m doubtful.

They are two and far away.
Two sides of my farm border the public road reserve.

They deplete water if planted on water catchment area or swampy area.

Since they are tall, they cause too much shading in the morning & evening hence stunted growth on your neighbours crops. Ensure the distance btw your trees & neighbours farm is at least 30metres or more if you are doing large scale.

It’s true. I has some growing wildly and had serious complaints from the neighbors. Had to cut them because of hostilities. And Forestry act prohibits planting them in catchment areas.

Ng'ombe ni risky(diseases, theft) unless you insure which adds to the overhead costs. Animal feeds are expensive but if you are rearing many cows you're better off.

Selling a tree 7,500 ni ndoto labda ujipasulie mbao which can be tedious. Ndio hizo blue gum zinone you have to space them adequately. You need a sizable track of land.

Never believe these twitter bigwigs wenye wanatweetia Nairobi go to the ground and DIYS. Hakuna shortcut ya kutajirika minus the heinous ways of course.

Ndii is just Twitter fingers. These trees sell for 200-500 each. And even then is a tough sell. You maybe have to process them into treated fence posts or floors to get 1-2k.
I thought so too. I went through that thread and saw people who have planted the trees say that the best they are getting in the market ni 1800 waambiwe kwenye watauza hio 7500.

which part of Kenya and is it a challenge to find a market? Ama ulifungua pork centre? Kuna jamaa ako na pork centre sides za 87/ uthiru anauza pork sana.
Mimi nimepanda miti 400 kwa shamba flani pale village
Msito umepanda 400 trees kwa shamba inatoshana aje? It's just this weekend I was thinking on planting trees on an acre of land karibu na Elburgon
