Artwork Description

The trees hold the soil in place as it fights erosion that causes landslides. It also absorbs and stores rainwater that helps reduce runoff and sediment deposits after the storms. It also helps recharge groundwater supply, prevents the transport of chemicals into streams as well as prevents flooding.

In addition to the carbon dioxide trees capture, they also help the soil capture and store carbon. Despite not doing such an incredible job as oceans do absorb around 90% of all carbon emissions and then suffering the impacts of ocean acidification trees are extremely important to help stop climate change.
