IdentificationThe original vegetation was the mangrove forest of Java’s northern coast, with considerable species diversity. However, due to the high level of forest degradation in this region, currently only 10% of which is covered by tree-lined vegetation. Most have turned into open swamps overgrown with grasses, reeds (Saccharum spontaneum) and water hyacinth (Eichchornia crassipes). There are about 30 species of plants and 11 of them are tree species.

The mangrove trees include mangroves (Rhizophora mucronata, R. apiculata), fires (Avicennia spp.), Pidada (Sonneratia caseolaris), and blind wood (Excoecaria agallocha). Several types of mangrove plant associations can also be found in this region such as ketapan (Terminalia catappa) and nipah (Nypa fruticans).

In addition to the above types, there are also several types of trees planted for reforestation. For example, Javanese acid (Tamarindus indica), bintaro (Cerbera manghas), cormis (Acacia auriculiformis), nyamplung (Calophyllum inophyllum), long (Bruguiera gymnorrhiza), and sea waru (Hibiscus tiliaceus).
