Planting started in the second season (September/October) of 2003 and was finalised in 2007. The species is Pinus caribaea var. Hondurensis (PCH) from seed of Brazil and Australian origin – plantation management was very strict on the seed source. This plantation is being managed on an anticipated twenty year rotation for the production of industrial roundwood. This will go along way in bridging the gap between timber demand and supply in Uganda. The growth at the Kasagala site is promosing, in that, althought it is in the semi arid cattle corriodor area of the country, some of the trees are 40 cm dbh at the age of 13 years!!! Thinning is on-going in various compartments of the forest and these second thinnings are of timber value.
