There are around 80 species of mangrove trees that are different from each other. To be able to live, mangrove trees must be planted in land areas with very low oxygen levels with enough water and the water must move slowly. Slow movement of water makes soil sediments and fine sand accumulate.

In addition to requiring special ecosystems, mangrove trees only grow in the tropics because all mangrove trees are not strong in cold temperatures. Mangroves are usually found on the edge of the coastline. Trees grow on swamps that have brackish water (fresh water mixed with sea water). Because the mangrove ecosystem has brackish water, not all types of plants can live in mangrove forests.
