Trees planted include the endemic [[Rozana|Schizolaena ''viscola'']] species with its yellow flowers between May and December which provides a food source to the 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 2007, employs staff mainly from Anjahankely and nearby villages, which in effect supports the livelihoods of the villagers and promotes 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 lemur species as well as support the local villages.
