Without trees, the rain water runs more quickly over the surface of the land and filters less. This means that less vegetation grows, which increases wind erosion and decreases the amount of rain. Therefore, harvests are worse and worse. 85% of Ethiopians live off of subsistence agriculture and 97% depend on rainwater. Raya-Mehoni, Ethiopia.
