Abstract: This paper reports on the results of a mitigative mangrove replanting project carried out in Singapore. Some 13 ha of mangrove forests were lost due to a project to create a disposal area for incinerated ash and other waste materials. Some time after replanting, survival of 80% to 90% of the planted mangroves was confirmed over the overall replanted area. These results are attributable to efficient supply of saplings, advance consideration of distribution tendencies in areas of mature mangrove growth, and the formation of a buffer zone.
