Trees planted include the endemic Schizolaena ''Schizolaena viscola'' species which with its yellow flowers between May and December is a lemur food source, . Breanadia ''Breanadia salicina'' and ''Intsia'' trees are planted at river sources to protect the waterways while ''Albizia lebeck'' is planted to improve the forage for grazing livestock.
Additionally, various palms and ''Dracaena'' trees are planted for decoration purposes at and around [[Black Lemur Camp]]. The camp, which supports the tree nursery since it was establishedin 2008, employs staff mostly staff from Anjahankely and nearby villages which supports the livelihoods of the villagers as well as and inspires a culture of preservation that profits from the forest's protection rather than its destruction.
A visit to the tree nursery combined with a stay at [[Black Lemur Camp ]] will indirectly help save the critically endangered black lemurs lemur species as well as improve the standard of living in the villages in the area.
