About 100 species have since been introduced and 83 have been planted at various times at KEFRI Arboretum, Muguga (Gottneid and Thogo, 1975). Out of the 83 species planted in the arboretum, only 71 have survived. Of these 4 are fast growing, 14 are moderate, and 53 are slow growing (Annex I). The aim of the initial introduction was to identify fast growing Eucalyptus species to supply woodfuel for the Kenya-Uganda railway. The uses of eucalypts have since increased and now include timber, plywood, transmission poles, pulp, building materials, fencing posts, rails (fitos), windbreaks, ornamentals and environmental enhancement. Eucalypts are also important in providing products that would otherwise be sourced from natural forests. </p> </div> </div> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/9" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">charles</span></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Mon, 10/29/2012 - 05:50</span> <div class="field field--name-field-resp field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Responsible party</div> <div class="field__item">Kenya Forestry Research Institute</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-fund field--type-string-long field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Funding bodies</div> <div class="field__item">Kenya Forestry Research Institute</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-upload field--type-file field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><table data-striping="1"> <thead> <tr> <th>Attachment</th> <th>Size</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr class="odd"> <td> <span class="file file--mime-application-pdf file--application-pdf"> <a href="https://fornis.net/sites/default/files/documents/new%20eucalyptus%20final.pdf" type="application/pdf; length=13011119">new eucalyptus final.pdf</a></span> </td> <td>12.41 MB</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> </div> </div> <a href="/taxonomy/term/5" hreflang="en">Forests and Climate Change</a> <a href="/taxonomy/term/501" hreflang="en">Eucalyptus</a> / <a href="/taxonomy/term/502" hreflang="en">blue gum</a> Mon, 29 Oct 2012 05:50:53 +0000 charles 482 at https://fornis.net
