Comments on sustainability

It Increases CO2 retention. Create a microclimate that reduces: hot/cold winds, soil runoff during rainy periods, frozen effects, etc. Allow a better soil structure & water retention. Increase the biodiversity including useful fauna and pollinators (Maintenance may be done without herbicides). Investments are needed at short term and incentives to cover the economic losses of UAA. Technical assessment needed to use native species.
