Northern Uganda

Forestmatic and Kijani Forestry partner for tree planting operations in Uganda, targeting community building and income generation from regenerative systems and sustainable production.


Forestmatic x Kijani Forestry

More than 50% of Uganda’s forest land has been clear-cut in the last 3 decades, and at this rate, by 2050 there will be no forested land left. Most Ugandans survive off subsistence farming on depleted land and growing low-market value crops. An astonishing 97% still rely on unsustainably sourced energy from firewood or charcoal.

Tree Nursery

With dedicated tree nurseries, seeds are nurtured from seedlings into saplings, before being planted in designated, geo-referenced planting sites.

Quality Assessment

After being planted in accordance with Regenerative Agroforestry practices, trees are individually tracked and digitized for assessment of quality conditions and survival rates.

Proof of Planting

We provide 1 capture as proof-of-planting of all trees planted that have been positively assessed.

Project Insight

The Project Description

Based on satellite data, an estimated 1.000.000 acres per year of forest are cut down and used for charcoal and timber production, and agricultural expansion. Rural communities, in desperate need of money, cut down trees without access to seedlings to replant, and have limited knowledge of regenerative techniques. Forests are depleted, and supply starts to diminish while the demand of an increasing population continues to grow.

Generating partnerships and working with local communities are at the essence of what we do. High-output tree nurseries that provide diverse seedlings, agroforestry training and employment opportunities to vulnerable communities affected by the effects of this climate crisis have been established in collaboration with our partners on the ground. So far, we have contributed to the digitization of 100 growers, who are stewarding with us to maintain and track all the trees we have planted.

Through this work, local communities maintain long-term market access to vital resources like fuelwood, fruit, and timber, while receiving education and access to the tools needed to implement agroforestry systems that will improve crops and help drive them out of poverty. In just one year of work with us, the projected increase in income for each household is $3.500 over 10 years, a +400% increase compared to their existing conditions.

To facilitate this turnaround, we plant fast-growing species that reach maturity between the 4th and 5th year of growth, after which, trees may be harvested employing coppicing techniques and FMNR (Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration). When the tree is mature and ready to be harvested, farmers are trained to use these techniques to regenerate a tree from the existing roots and stumps. After the new tree from the coppiced roots has grown again for roughly 5 years and is ready, the process repeats itself for a second cycle, and over again with improved ecosystemic effects compared to massive seed planting. In a single growth cycle of five years, thanks to improved land management and soil sequestration, we estimate each tree to sequester about 63,3 Kg of CO2e. Estimations & Conversions

Project SDGs

By supporting this work, we are directly contributing to 6 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) established by the United Nations (U.N.). As a recognized actor by the U.N. of the “Decade on Ecosystem Restoration” we are proud to promote No Poverty (SDG1), Gender Equality (SDG 9), Decent Work & Economic Growth (SDG 8), Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG 11), Climate Action (SDG 13), and Partnerships for the Goals (SDG 17).
