We Are Uganda Tree Resource Limited

Uganda Tree Resources was born out of the Uganda Tree Biotechnology Project (UTBP) within National Forest Research Institute (NaFORRI), the forestry section of National Agricultural Research Organization (NARO).  Its aim was to provide tree farmers with quality, fast growing and high yielding planting material. UTBP was funded by Gatsby Charitable Foundation (GCF) through Kilimo Trust and lead by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA). The project had previously began in 1997 in Kenya as a collaborative effort to increase tree planting in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. Implemented by Uganda Gatsby Trust (UGT) using funds received from GCF through Kilimo Trust, it managed  to produce material for expansion and operationalization of Kifu nursery and further field testing.

 In the past, tree planting in these countries had been scarce leading to high rates of deforestation, an under-developed forestry sector and possible scarcity of forestry by-products. With the acquisition of a variety of Hybrid Eucalyptus clones and each of the countries' forestry Research Institutes, the project succeeded in propagating the trees and matching to different bio-climatic areas in each country.  For the second stage of the project (commercial production) the product was met with such high demand, that the founding organisations decided it was best to give TBP independence to grow as a commercial enterprise. In August 2012, Uganda Tree Resources Limited was registered as a company and aimed to meet the growing demand for trees in Uganda. UGT managed to set up two other clonal nurseries one in Busiika, Fort Portal and  the other in Mbale.  It also succeeded in promoting clonal forestry, mass producing and distributing Eucalyptus clonal material.
