The Black Mangrove plays a key role in the mangrove ecosystem of the Everglades. The tree is valued for its protection and stabilization of low-lying coastal lands and its importance in estuarine and coastal fishery food chains.

Black, white, and red mangroves serve as feeding, breeding, and nursery grounds for a great variety of fish, shellfish, birds, and other wildlife.
