Buffer to prevent soil loss

After I posted the picture of the run-off from a farm, here is another picture showing a tree planted buffer zone. This area will stop the soil from being washed away and provide a "buffer" to improve water quality. The trees and grass are also absorbing carbon dioxide as they grow (technical term is sequestering) so it is a way of tackling climate change too.
