Under the supervision of the horticulturists, the University continues to replace exotic trees and shrubs with indigenous plants. Use of flowering plants such as Tecomaria, Strelitzia, Plumbago and Aloe, has successfully enticed a large number of bird species to the campus grounds. The removal of invasive aliens plants from all campuses is a priority. Some of the more frequent invasive alien plants still encountered are Chromolaena odorata (Triffid Weed), Lantana camara (Lantana), Leucaena leucocephala (Leucaena), Melia azedarach (Syringa) and Schinus terebinthifolius (Brazil Pepper Tree).

Trees are in the process of being labelled (Latin, English and Zulu names) to assist students, staff and visitors to become familiar with some of the coastal vegetation of KwaZulu Natal.
