Trees planted include the endemic [[Rozana|Schizolaena
''viscosa'' ]] species which with its yellow flowers between May and December provides a food source to the lemurs. Breonadia ''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.
The tree nursery employs five full-time staff but during planting periods the whole community in the village of
Anjhankely participates in the tree planting activities. The Anjahanakely Tree Nursery project is a good example of how conservation can best be done by actively engaging a local population.
