Abstract
A previous article described species suitable for planting in the Highlands. The present article deals with those recommended for planting in the extensive dry zone, which is taken to include land between 2,500 ft and 4,000 ft. altitude, having an annual rainfall less than about 35 inches. Most of the species described will grow equally well or better in the coastal belt, and are also suitable for the wetter miombo country such as Geita, Kigoma or Mpanda where the rainfall is about 40 inches. These latter areas are, however, now proving suitable for some of the species usually planted in the Highlands, especially Pines and Eucalyptus
