Abstract: "Uganda's forest cover is estimated at 1,473 million hectares of gazetted forest and 2-3 million hectares of unreserved natural forest cover and savanna woodlands. These valuable forest resources are, however, disappearing rapidly. Deforestation in Uganda is estimated to occur at a rate of 500-650 Km2 annually and the rate has accelerated in recent times in spite of government effort to restrict the harvest of valuable trees. Tragically, the uncertainty resulting from changes in government policy may have contributed to this acceleration."
