The protective role of trees in soil conservation



The protective role of trees in soil conservation



New Zealand Journal of Forestry 49(4): 9-15



The impacts on slope stability of Cyclone Bola in 1988 and the February storms in Wanganui-Manawatu in February 2004 provided strong evidence that treeless steepland is very vulnerable to mass wasting during large cyclonic storms whereas forested slopes are relatively resistant to failure. The evidence from numerous studies indicates it is the tree root systems which provide most of the additional resistance.
