The short rotation commercial Pulp Wood Tree Species currently promoted by UKPL is based on land suitability classification. Thee plantations are mostly planted by farmers in their low productive, rain fed lands and do not compete with food crops.
UKPL operates and manages three plant production nurseries to produce superior planting material for distribution to farmers to help increase the yields and income from their land. The nurseries have a capacity to produce twenty million plants per annum.
UKPL also has a robust services division which engages with the farmers throughout the plantation cycle.
The farmers are encouraged to plant trees in a range of models suitable to their land use pattern (i.e. Block planting, Bund planting & Agro-forestry).
