The Muiri Estate was formed in 1976 and named for an African tree species called Pruners, or “Muiri” in the Kikuyu language. The Estate is well-developed, and consists of the farm itself, a wet mill, a large dam, storehouses, and cottages for its workers. Muiri has approximately 156,000 trees in production, most of which are SL28, SL34, or K7, with about 35% being Ruiru 11. Several other species of trees have been planted, including eucalyptus, silver oak, and neem. Farm workers are housed in cottages on-site during the peak harvest period.
