The natural park is home to 156 floral species belonging to 36 families and 83 species of trees, including the single dipterocarp
found in the area, locally known as baguatsa or gisok-gisok (Hopea philippinensis); and one near-threatened species from the rare family Nepentheceae, the pitcher plant.
They are usually perched on dipterocarp
trees (tall, hardwood forest trees) and feed on small mammals, rodents and snakes.

Motorized tricycles piled high with bags of charcoal lie among tall mounds of illegal lumber cut from 100-year-old dipterocarp
and heavy ironwood trees.
The eleven chapters comprise an introduction; a botanical description of the three pantropical dipterocarp
subfamilies which then focusses on fuller field description of the speciose Asian subfamily Dipterocarpoideae, which are the focus of the book; accounts of family ecological geography, and phylogeny and historical geography; followed by Dipterocarpoid reproductive biology and population genetics, species responses to light, water and nutrients, Asian dipterocarp
forest and species' dynamics and the possible impact of climate change, and community ecology; culminating in a broad review of recent and current dipterocarp
exploitation, conservation, and potentials for restoration.

Authorities likewise apprehended from the scene twenty two (22) pieces of dipterocarp
lumber with a volume of of 1, 178 board feet , 108 yakal lumber, one unit bandsaw and one chainsaw.
The study suggests that the density of medium and large-sized mammals overall in the [Sumatran] swamp forests is higher than in the lowland and hill dipterocarp
forests, while the number of species is lower.
Moore's views were proven correct a few years later when Brown and Mathews' study of the Philippines dipterocarp
forests reported that the diameter limits currently in use would effectively result in the clear-cutting of the forest because of the need for young dipterocarps
to be shielded from the sun.
