In the aftermath of a fire, the soil is dry and is exposed to wind and rain. Both will remove the topsoil unless measures are taken to prevent this. One, tried and trusted, method is dry-stone walling which effectively helps to prevent erosion and creates new habitats. This project will include repairing existing walls and give training to those who wish to create new ones. Planting new shrubs and trees also prevents erosion since the roots bind the soil.
