The Forest Development Directorate in collaboration with our Forest Research Institute in the area of planted forest has ventured in areas such as the establishment of Seed Production Areas, improved nursery techniques, growth and yield and species domestication. In the planted forest areas, we have worked closely with Forest Research Institute in the research into selection and domestication of important high valued native timber species, identifying suitable species for various specific uses and provide scientific information and data for establishing and maintenance of forest plantations for industrial use and environmental protection.

This includes reforestation and afforestation of anthropogenic degraded areas. Research that has been conducted to date include the screening of selected species, development and improvement of selected species, planted forest growth and yield and developing management manuals.
