The tree nursery which plants approximately 30,000 trees p/year is located in the village of [[Anjahankely]] and fulfils an essential role in protecting its nearby lemur habitat.
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 lebbeck'' is planted to improve the forage for grazing zebu livestock.
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.

The tree nursery employs five full-time staff but during planting periods the whole community from surrounding villages participate in the
tree planting activities. The Anjahanakely Tree Nursery project makes a good example of how conservation can best be done by actively engaging a local population.
