Natural vegetation is very important because of these reasons:

1.) Vegetation is a key component of an ecosystem and, as such, is involved in the regulation of various biogeochemical cycles, e.g., water, carbon, nitrogen.

2.) Vegetation converts solar energy into biomass and forms the base of all food chains. 3.) Vegetation influences the energy balance at the earth’s surface and within the atmospheric boundary layer, often mitigating extremes of local climate. 4.) Vegetation releases oxygen and sequesters carbon. 5.) Vegetation affects soil development over time, generally contributing to a more productive soil. 6.) Vegetation provides wildlife habitat and food.
