State 2, Plant Community 2, Mixed Alien/Native Forest plant community.
State 3 –Alien Forest
This state is comprised of one plant community. The general aspect is a forest with a closed upper canopy of alien trees 60 to 80 feet tall (or even taller for albizia), a secondary canopy of alien trees of various heights, and a mixed understory of mostly alien shrubs, vines, ferns, and grasses. Native pandanus trees are able to reproduce and survive to some extent.
