The diversity of trees found in the wetlands, open water systems, moist tropical forests, woodlands and drylands, bushland, thicket, grassland and semi-arid regions of Uganda is a must for tree lovers. The rule in Uganda is if one tree is cut down, three more need to be planted. It is green all through the year!
