Three thinnings are prescribed in Matang, Malaysia (at 15, 20, and 25 years of age), one thinning in Indonesia. Mature propagules that remain viable for 4-5 months are gathered from the forest floor. Rhizophora forests are being heavily exploited for fuelwood and poles. Average annual increase in diameter over a 30-year period in Matang, Malaysia, was 0.32 cm. Damaged young trees are capable of recovering by sprouting from dormant buds and bending upwards to form another erect stem. In recent years it has been extensively harvested for production of wood chips in East Malaysia and Indonesia. Rhizophora apiculata is called ‘bakhaw lalaki,’ in the Philippines, "Thakafathi ތަކަފަތި" in the Maldives, 'Đước' in Vietnam, Garjan in India, as well as other vernacular names. Natural regeneration is often good, provided sufficient seed trees are left after harvesting. R. stylosa has broadly elliptical leaf blades, up to 12 cm × 7 cm, flowers with styles 4-6 mm long and the hypocotyl up to 30 cm long. It is a well-known fact that the generation of free radicals has been associated with oxidative stress.

In some plantations, long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascularis) and grapsid crabs (Sesarma spp.) It grows gregariously in swamps flooded by normal high tide, on deep soft mud of estuaries, often consolidated and sheltered from surf and currents by pioneer species of Avicennia L. and Sonneratia L. R. apiculata avoids hard soils and develops well in per-humid regions where it can form almost pure stands, sometimes in association with Bruguiera spp. The bark provides a medicine against dysentery. The main agroforestry uses from this species are soil stabilization, coastal protection, wildlife/marine habitat for marine fauna and also as timber products which are fuelwood, charcoal, dyes, and traditional medicines [7];[8]. Role of Acrostichum species in natural regeneration of Rhizophora species in Malaysia. YieldsIn Malaysia, the 30-year rotation har- vested yield of green wood has been about 136– 299 mt/ha (61–133 t/ac). The DNA protection efficiency of extracts against oxidative damage was confirmed by DNA nicking assay using bacterial DNA. Additional planting and planting in denuded areas mostly succeeds well, provided the ecological conditions are suitable. Other Uses The bark is an important local source of tannin The tannin of Rhizophora is associated with a substance which darkens gradually; it is used as a deep brown or black dye. The genus Rhizophora contains more species of mangrove than any other. It is unlikely that any substantial germplasm collections of R. apiculata are being maintained. van Vliet, G.J.C.M., 1976. The methanol extract effectively inhibited the growth and induces the apoptosis through ROS generation and sensitizes the mitochondrial membrane potential of A549 lung cancer cells. The bark of Rhizophora spp. Estimates of annual litterfall vary from 6-11.5 t/ha. Wildings are readily available, as natural regeneration is often profuse. If cut at least 20 cm above the stilt roots, regeneration is without problems. 2016;54(1):118-29. doi: 10.3109/13880209.2015.1017886.
