Tokai Park is part of Table Mountain National Park, which is managed by SANParks and Friends of Tokai Park. As the pine plantation is gradually harvested, the park conserves more of the highly threatened Cape Flats Sand Fynbos and Peninsula Granite Fynbos vegetation types in the area. When the pines are removed, the natural vegetation regenerates from the seed bank, which is still viable in the soil after decades. Fire is an important process in this regeneration.
