About

One quarter of Uganda’s surface is covered by water, and most of its land is 1,000 meters above sea level. Semi-arid desert lies in the northeast, while the rest of country is dominated by forests and savannas. With only 25% of Uganda’s land arable, population growth puts pressure on it. Overgrazing and the use of trees for firewood are growing problems. The shrinking amount of available land for farmers is forcing many farmers to produce the same amount of food on less land.

What We've Done

Agroforestry can improve soil fertility and agricultural output. Trees for the Future facilitates tree planting and agroforestry sensitization workshops in Uganda. Our work with partner organizations has helped establish 90 nurseries. We’ve given out 4,500,000 seeds and planted 700,000 trees.
