Description This aims to develop macro and micro-propagation protocols of priority forest tree species and make possible the rapid multiplication of CPTs (Candidate Plus Trees) for mass planting under the NGP.I specifically aims to: develop appropriate macro- and micro-propagation techniques for the priority forest tree specie; produce enough clones of the CPTs for planting in clonal hedges or ramet multiplication gardens; and establish, protect and maintain hedge gardens of the cloned CPTs that will serve as sustainable sources of juvenile cuttings and explants in the production of high quality planting materials.
