Plantation forestry is important to Uganda as it represents a future resource of timber
for fuel and structural purposes. Diseases, however, pose a serious threat to the
productivity and sustainability of this emerging industry. A number of serious
diseases have already been reported from surveys recently conducted in Uganda. The
aim of the present study was to expand on the current knowledge of some of the diseases and to gain additional information regarding their causal agents.
