Mangrove Edge by X5-442 Mangrove Edge by X5-442
Some of my favorite trees: mangroves. Sadly, these guys aren't native here. Wish they were. They're cool. They're trees that can live in salt water! They excrete excess salt from their roots and leaves.
But they're good at destroying the fishponds farmers use here, so everyone hates 'em.

I also heard that in Hawaii mangroves were poisoned. However, these trees have 2 uses -
1) to control beach erosions
2) to attract visitors, foreign and local alike.

True, but they're holding in a bunch of mud that isn't normally held in. Thus the water around them is freaking murky.
It really is a shame because I love these trees.
