    “Tree roots can stabilize the soil and reduce erosion where pastureland is excessively sloped.” Leaf litter and small fallen twigs also add organic matter to improve soil fertility. Trees also provide protection to livestock from cold winter winds, hot drying summer winds and prevents excessive exposure to the sun. “The sheltering effect of trees reduces convectional heat loss from livestock in winter and reduces radiant heat off the ground during summer. Therefore, shelter from pasture trees decreases stress in livestock by providing more comfortable living conditions.”
