HOW CAN WE HELP YOU? 

 

To find details on a specific tree...

Click on the "Trees" button in the left menu bar. This will take you to a page where you can select a tree by scientific name, common name, or local name. When you select a tree, you are taken to the tree detail page. To view another tree, click on the "Select another tree" link at the center of the top of the tree detail page, or click "view next tree" or "view previous tree" to browse through all trees in the database.

 

To submit information or change information on the website....

Click on the "Submit Info" button in the left menu bar. Click "Submit a New Tree" if you would like to add a new tree to the database. You will be taken through several steps and will be able to enter as much information as you want about the new tree.

Click "Suggest a change" if you would like to change information currently posted on the website, or if you would like to add to a current tree listing. For instance, if you know a local name that is not listed, you can add it by suggesting a change, selecting the current tree record, and adding the local name to it.

The changes or additions you make will not show up instantly. If the administator approves your changes, they will be submitted to the database and updated on the website at a future date. We encourage you to be a part of this information sharing process and submit any information, pictures, or links you have that are not currently available! The more complete accurate information we have to offer website visitors, the better!

 

To learn more about Kenyan climate, geography, and vegetation...

Click on the "Climate/Geography" button in the left menu bar. The links at the top of the page allow you to view maps of Kenya with relevant data. The fourth link will pop up a new window with a printable version of the maps. There are also links on the home page that lead to general information about trees and precipitation in Kenya.

 

To print tree details...

Follow the instructions above to find the tree detail page you would like to print. Click on the "View Printable Version" link under the name of the tree at the top of the page. Make sure your pop-up blocker is turned off for this website, because the printable versions open in a new window. By using the printable version instead of printing from the tree detail page, you will be able to read the reference URL addresses on the printout, and the information will be formatted to fit on standard 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper.
