Flowers / plants
Along the Avenue in some 260 m long segment are remaining some 20 - 25 trees about 30 meters in height, some 20 - 25 more trees of this species grow in nearby rice paddies and meadows.
The area is not a national park, and the trees are threatened by further deforestation, effluent from encroaching rice paddies and sugarcane plantations, and bush and forest fires.
Despite its popularity as a tourist destination, the area has no visitor center or gate fees, and local residents receive little income from tourism.
Conservation International in partnership with Fanamby, a Malagasy NGO, has launched an ecotourism project aimed at conservation of the area and economic improvement for the local community.
