We have had the pleasure of meeting Beatrice Okwakau, business woman in timber and a farm owner. In order to start listing market prices of timber we gather information on prices on different tree species. Mrs Okwaku is a cunning business woman and the prices we got are quite low. It seems like the timber market in Kenya look pretty much like back when Dickson ruled the infamous estate Baggböle in Sweden.

You can see on the pictures below wich chainsaw is used and popular.


Manual labour with chainsaw in Kenya means a minimum of security. When it comes to security I have seen horrible things. The working people in Kenya are not equipped with safety gear at all. When using the saw they work in shorts and sandals. This could mean opportunities for Swedish instructors to develop the safety standards.
