In order to contribute towards the reforestation of Ghana's estate via plantation, CSIR-FORIG was tasked by the Forestry Commission - Timber Industry (FC/Industry) Fund Committee to establish best practice plantation of fast growing indigenous and exotic commercial species under the FC /Industry plantation fund. The objectives of the project are to:

  • Rehabilitate degraded portions of the Mankrang Forest Reserve with both indigenous and exotic tree species
  • Provide raw materials for the Timber Industry

So far three nursery sites have been established at the National Tree Seed Centre (NTSC) at CSIR-FORIG, Mesewam  and Mankran to provide seedlings for the plantation.
