Explain how forests prevent land slides

Asked by Yadavsantosh56808 | 16 Feb, 2020, 07:28: PM
Expert Answer

Forests prevent landslides in the following way:

  • They reinforce and dry soils.
  • They directly obstruct smaller slides and rock falls.
  • Trees also reduce landslide risk by lowering soil moisture levels by primary mechanisms of interception, evaporation and transpiration.
