|The stand of introduced mahogany|
|A silent forest|
|The lone tuai tree|
Yet in a ravine a few meters from the artificial forest, there is a fruiting native tree called tuai (Bischofia javanica) and it was teeming with life. It was heavily burdened with fruits and these were feasted on by yellow vented bulbuls and swiftlets. The air was filled with the animated birds and their high pitched sounds. It was a clear contrast to the silence of the American mahogany patch.
