All pine trees have been eradicated, with the exception of a line of pines adjacent the Garden Route National Park that has been home to a pair of African Fish Eagles for many years. The indigenous vegetation is already thriving and each new season produces new plant highlights and furthers their goal of greater plant and insect diversity. The aim of their reforestation programme is to assist nature in returning this land back to its original state; simultaneously off-setting their carbon footprint.
