It is important to plant indigenous trees so that, slowly, the alien species that provide habitats to so many species can be replaced without losing any of the species diversity, whilst returning the ecosystem to a state of natural equilibrium.

Indigenous trees and shrubs are being planted to replace alien vegetation in the reserve. A large number of indigenous trees (about 15 – 20 different species) have been planted on the Reserve, with more to come. Trees have been labelled and numbered, both for monitoring purposes and for visitor information.
