Trees planted include the endemic Schizolaena ''viscola'' species with its yellow flowers between May and December which provides a food source to lemurs. Breanadia ''salicina'' and ''Intsia'' trees are also 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 established in 2008, employs staff mainly from Anjahankely and nearby villages , which in effect supports the livelihoods of the villagers that and promotes a culture of preservation which that profits from the forest's protection rather than its destruction. The tree nursery itself employs four full-time staff.
A visit to the tree nursery combined with a stay at [[Black Lemur Camp]] will indirectly help save the critically endangered black lemur species as well as improve the standard of living in and support the villages in the area.
