Black mangrove has persisted in the intertidal marsh and is a valuable component of the ecosystem. Loss of black mangrove is a concern as it is a woody species that persists and assists in habitat development and in breaking wave energy and adds nesting habitat for birds including the pelican.
Care must be taken to planting as black mangrove is very susceptible to freezing. More work needs to be done in collecting ecotypes that might be more frost resistant, or attention to habitat differences.
