Who should be thinking about this?

Business investors that need less volatile ventures but with a higher Return on Investment (RoI),

Parents who want to secure premium education that would otherwise be expensive for their children,

Politicians who want to invest and earn considerably well to fund their next campaigns, or perhaps provide a cushion for their exit strategy,

Corporates that would want to secure their financial positions and strengthen the asset base (home, car, farming etc),

Institutions that seek to fulfill their Corporate Social Responsibility through giving back to communities – Tree planting for better income, alternative source of income to deforestation, conservation etc.

Individuals that are approaching retirement and would want to land softly. This investment option is less risky, has a higher RoI, it is less demanding and needs less supervision.

Companies that need cheaper, alternative sources of energy for their production process.

Ugandans living abroad and looking for a worthy and safe investment at home.

We have varieties that are suitable for both hot and cool regions of the country.

WHAT ARE HYBRID EUCALYPTUS CLONES?

A Hybrid is essentially a cross-breed between two or more plant varieties of the same species – in this case, two eucalyptus varieties. The varieties selected by Researchers, to make the most suitable hybrids for Uganda were: E. Grandis, E. Camaldulensis and E. Urophylla.

E. Grandis is always the mother tree in the hybridization process, allowing its best traits in variety whilst also allowing the other varieties to contribute their best traits in combination. Once the cross-breeds are produced, then seeds from the most vigorous individual mother trees are selected based on field performance and physical characteristics; they are then propagated by harvesting shoot-cuttings and inserting them in prepared pots for subsequent multiplication.

Grown up shoot cuttings of different mother plants are then taken through field trials. It is this process which determines the field performance of individual hybrid varieties – leading to the grading such as GC 550, GC 796, GU 7, GU 8 etc.

UTRL produces various GU (E. Grandis and E. Urophylla) which perform well in cooler climates where rainfall is plentiful. GC (E. Grandis and E. Camaldulensis) hybrid clones are known to perform best in hotter climates with less rainfall.
