Mangrove forest Features

The mangrove is the o­nly species of tree in the world that can grow in the swampy ground along the coast. A special species of forest vegetation-the mangrove tree-grows in the tidal zones lying between land and sea in China's subtropical areas. Its seeds remain hanging o­n the mother tree until saplings appear. Some then fall into the mud and take root, while others are carried to other areas by seawater. The mangrove tree has a marvelous speed of reproduction and growth. By and by the tree roots and branches mix up, creating a kind of natural beauty.
