The Trees for Tourism rehabilitation site on the Klein River Cheese Farm, 7 km outside the village of Stanford, is a dedicated project to restore one of the few remaining riparian forests on the Klein River.
The forest is 8 ha in extent and includes a wooded kloof on its southern boundary.
Over the years the forest has been degraded by settlers planting blackwoods, poplars and oak for harvesting. There are areas of original forest which remain and include a swathe of milkwoods along the eastern boundary which act as a good fire barrier.
Berg river yellowwoods are naturally present in the forest. The forest is bordered by fynbos, renosterbos and agricultural grazing on the opposite bank of the river which forms its one boundary.
