Woody species

The potential natural vegetation map of east Africa is complemented by a species selection tool, which can be used to ‘find the right tree for the right place’ and potential distribution maps of the useful woody species that occur in eastern Africa.

Besides the resources to select ‘the right tree for the right place’ listed below, we recommend to check out the online Useful Tree Species for Africa (UTSA) tool and the Global Tree Knowledge Platform (GTKP).
