BAT Uganda Says It Plans to Plant 2.5 Million Trees for Curing

Mar. 23 (Bloomberg) -- British American Tobacco Uganda Ltd. plans to plant 2.5 million trees this year as it strives to become self-reliant in the wood it needs for curing the crop.

BAT Uganda has raised 2.3 million eucalyptus seedlings and will also plant indigenous varieties, the Kampala-based company said in an advert published today in New Vision newspaper. BAT said it started a tree-planting program in 2004 with the aim of being self-reliant by 2015.
