Forest cover stands at about 4.9 million hectares (ha), which is 24% of Uganda’s land area. The forests comprise both natural and man-made plantations. “Natural forests” include both the tropical high forests (THF) and other naturally wooded land that falls within the definition of “forest”. THFs cover 924,000 ha (just under 5% of Uganda’s land area) while other wooded lands cover 3,974,102 (19%).
Forest-based Tourism is one of the activities that the Authority views as a key contributor to its revenue generation as well as building and enhancing partnerships with the private sector, Non-Government Organisations and local communities. Ecotourism is also expected to improve on the Authority’s public image both internationally and locally.
The Tree Seed Centre has built standard infrastructure to collect, process, test, store and distribute tree seeds of over 100 indigenous and exotic species. The laboratory is equipped to test seed for quality assurance using the International Seed Testing Association (ISTA) Guidelines. For storage the Centre has ambient rooms, and the cold room (4oC).
