Trees allow water to be drained into the ground. Their canopies absorb the force of the raindrop and thereby prevent soil erosion, their roots absorb water from the soil, making the soil drier and able to store more rainwater. These roots hold the soil in place, reducing the movement of sediments that can shrink river channels downstream.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the people affected by the floods in Chennai, India. Plant trees today to avoid man-made disasters or plant with us @ www.grow-trees.com
