ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Okay kiddo, do you know what revegetation means? No? Well, let me explain it to you. You know how sometimes large areas of land are cleared off and nothing grows there after that? That's because all the plants and soil were taken away. And that's not good for the environment because it disturbs the balance of nature.

So, when people want to bring back the plants and make the land green again, they do something called "revegetation." It's like they are giving the land a second chance to grow back new plants and grass.

When they do revegetation, they usually start by preparing the soil. That means they check to see if the soil is good enough for the new plants to grow. Then, they plant seeds or new plants in the soil. They need to water and take care of them until they grow strong and healthy enough to survive on their own.

Revegetation is important because it helps save the environment. It brings back the balance of nature and makes the land look nice too. Plus, it helps animals and insects by giving them new homes to live in. So that's why people try so hard to revegetate the land when it has been cleared off.
