Caption: Cleared forest. Land which has been cleared of forest next to a sediment-laden river. This forest has been cleared to create pasture for cattle farming. The removal of trees can lead to greater erosion by rivers because the soil in its banks is no longer held together by the trees' roots. Photographed near New Plymouth on North Island, New Zealand.
