A hybrid is essentially a cross between two
species – in this case, two eucalyptus species.
The species selected for suitable tree planting
in Uganda were: E. Grandis, E. Camadulensis
and E. Urophyila, E. Grandis is always the
mother tree in the hybrid croses, allowing
the best traits of the species whilst also
allowing the remaining species to contribute.
Once the crosses are made, individual trees
are selected based on performance and
physical characteristics to propagate
through harvest of cuttings. Cuttings
are then placed in growing media through
to hardening and field planting.
