NOAA Photo Library Image - r0008715

This image shows the big stumps of the Brazilian Peppers that have been cut to make way for mangroves. Brazilian Pepper bushes can reach twenty feet in height. During the restoration, bushes as big as 9" in diameter were cleared to provide habitat for mangroves to recolonize. Without restoration efforts to clear Brazilian Pepper, the bush could take over mangrove habitat in two years time.
