Chocolates may be yummy, roses may be romantic, but trees save lives.
Trees are vital in maintaining a stable global climate. Trees protect biodiversity. Deforestation has resulted in many floods that have claimed human lives. Why do trees help in the prevention of flooding?
- Tree roots absorb water from the soil, making the soil drier and able to store more rainwater.
- Tree roots hold the soil in place, reducing the movement of sediment that can shrink river channels downstream.
- Some rainwater stays on the leaves, and it may evaporate directly to the air .
- Leaves reduce raindrop impact, and gentler rain causes less erosion.
