New Forests Company (Uganda)Kampala
About the Company
Conceived in 2004, and operational from 2005 in Uganda, The New Forests Company has rapidly established itself as Uganda’s biggest tree planter with 54,000 acres of forestry land and is emerging as the country’s pre-eminent sustainable forestry company. The company is now operational on three plantations across the country in Mubenbe, Kiboga and the Bugiri districts and will have, by the end of 2008, planted 15,000 acres of pine and eucalyptus. The company is currently exploring new ways to generate early revenues in 2008-2009.
The New Forests Company is:
In the current year, 2008, the company planted almost 4,5 million trees, bringing our total tree stock by year end to approximately 8.5-9 million (or 15,000 acres). The trees, pine and eucalyptus, will supply sawn timber and building and transmission poles. The company is not only planting commercial species on suitable soils, but will also regenerate badly destroyed existing indigenous trees species like Albizia, Melicia Excelsior and Markhamia as part of the bio-diversity conservation goals. This is in order to rehabilitate the heavily damaged water catchment area.
