Deforestation in Haiti - View of Haiti's deforested mountains near Los Cacaos, Plateau Central Haiti

Look at this photo... Deforestation in Haiti is much worse than you think... I was so shocked when stood in font if this mountain range near Los Cacaos, Plateau Central Haiti, along the Haiti-Dominican Border while cruising along the international road that separate the two countries.

If you think deforestation in Haiti is a severe environmental problem, Look at this photo... This is how bad it really is... You can literally count the number of trees left...

It looks like you can walk for miles and not be able to find a good shade. there are no trees, no houses... No life!

Some of Us Haitians talk about deforestation in Haiti but we never actually see it.

Each and every Haitian needs to take a good look at this photo and admit it... If we continue to cut trees in Haiti this is what the hole country will look like.

A Tent City without Grass and Pavement, It is a Pigsty

A Tent City without Grass and Pavement, It is a Pigsty

Without grass and pavement, when the rain comes in a Haitian tent city, it will become a pigsty!

Without Grass, When it rains in Haiti, the soil becomes wet and muddy.

Read this from education.com:

"Grasslands have some protection from wind and water erosion (the process by which materials of Earth's surface are broken down and carried away by natural agents, such as wind and water) because of their grass covering. Grasses have fibrous roots, which are roots that have no main section but spread out into the soil in all directions. Fibrous roots are thin and form a tangled mass in shallow soil. This mass helps to hold the soil together, so wind and water do not easily erode the soil."
