Environmental Impacts of the Project

Other environmental benefits claimed are reduced soil erosion and the regulation of hydrological flows in the watershed, improving soil health and contributing to climate stabilization. Importantly the project will act as a demonstration to other areas; plowing, which results in severe soil erosion, is avoided by establishing trees manually, and careful control of fertilizers and insecticide use minimize threats to downstream water quality. (The biodiversity benefits of this project, and of A/R projects generally, are reviewed in some detail in Chapter 4.)
