This chapter examines the value of natural experiments for studying aspects of alien tree invasions in South Africa. It presents case studies involving species of Acacia, Hakea, Pinus, Eucalyptus, and Metrosideros. It explores the contributions of natural experiments towards generalizations in plant invasion ecology and the extent to which such studies can reduce the harmful effects of tree invasions.

Keywords:   natural experiments, alien tree invasions, South Africa, Acacia, Hakea, Pinus, Eucalyptus, plant invasion, tree invasions
