        The Forest & The Soil Cycle

        Forests protect our soil from erosion, acting as a sponge and filter. Trees drop leaves, branches, bark, and seeds to decompose and add needed nutrients to the soil. The cycle is complete when the roots of a tree are fed by components in the soil and the tree grows more leaves to create more organic matter. Learn about the soil cycle in this video segment.

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
