Abstract
In Uganda Mvule is being underplanted in clean hoed Terminalia, fire climax, savanna woodland, which has a reasonably close canopy. With the Mvule are planted savanna mahoganies, Khaya spp., and the nurse species Gmelina arborea and Phyllanthus discoideus. Within ten years the original savanna species are mostly dead and the original grass species largely eradicated. It would be interesting to hear how the rate of volume increment of the Mvule will compare with that grown under the widely different conditions prevailing on the coast of Kenya.
