A motorcycle passes a fenced off area that was meant to protect a tree buffer. The fence is broken and cattle graze on what remains of the trees. As less rain falls, plants die away, increasing desertifiaction, as there are no roots to hold the topsoil in place and prevent the advance of wind and sand. A buffer of trees, if it can survive the climate, could slow the advance of the desert.
