The bank has eroded so drastically that it could compromise the Greenbelt walk way in just a few years.
Rivers and streams are dynamic waterways that are always changing.

They also catch sediment in the tree branches and prevent it from flowing down the treeclear.barted Reading Time: 6 mins. Jan 20, Of course, some of the recent tree falls may have the potential to cause problems, for example by increasing flood risk if they are upstream of bridges and likely to break loose in floods.
Many however will be firmly attached to the bank by root systems and remain stable during high water; these are some of the most valuable habitat features to be found on rivers. Jan 07, Tree Revetment. In a tree revetment system, small fallen trees are laid horizontally along the stream bank and anchored in place to prevent erosion.
The trees slow down the flow of water along the back, greatly diminishing the rate of treeclear.barted Reading Time: 5 mins.
