Abstract
The Report On the Botanical, Forestry and Scientific Department (of Uganda) for the year ended 31st March, 1908, stated: - By the Governor's direction a timber plantation has been formed in the vicinity of each Station, excepting those of the Nile Province. The two most important timbers of the Protectorate, viz. Nsambya (Markhamia platycalyx) and Mvule (Chlorophora excelsa) have been planted. The areas of the plantations vary from 10 to 30 acres, according to the importance of the Station. It is hoped that these plantations will afford an adequate supply of timber for station purposes in years to come.
