The majority of the flora that grows in this forest are nutmeg trees (Dipterocarpus hasseltii) which number around 400 trees and are between 200 and 400 years old.

In the Lontar Chronicle of Mengwi, nutmeg has been planted in this forest since the time of the Mengwi Kingdom in the 17th century. This coincided with the presence of the Bukit Sari Temple which is in the middle of the forest.

For the local community, nutmeg is used for various religious activities such as cremation ceremonies and has a big impact on their conservation efforts.

The involvement of the Sangeh Traditional Village community in protecting and preserving this sacred forest also has a positive effect on the sustainability of this forest.

Local people are strictly prohibited from cutting down trees that grow in the forest and are only allowed to take twigs, leaves or fruit that has fallen to the ground.

As a forest whose habitat is protected, this forest is also inhabited by many species of long-tailed gray monkey (Macaca fascicularis).

The resident monkeys in the Sangeh nutmeg forest are divided into three groups or banjars according to the Balinese version, namely the East Banjar, Central Banjar and West Banjar groups. Each banjar or group has a group leader.

Every day, 3 to 4 sacks of cassava and banana feed weighing 50 kilograms are given to the monkeys here.

This variety of monkey food is specially grown in the gardens of residents through village treasury funds obtained from selling tickets to enter the nutmeg forest.

Regular feeding in the morning and evening is intended so that the monkeys here become tame and don’t disturb the tourists.

Even though the monkeys here are tame, you still have to be careful so that the monkeys don’t do anything that can hurt you.
