- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of removing trees, leaf litter and soil surface on shrublands.
'We found no studies’ means that we have not yet found any studies that have directly evaluated this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Removing trees allows more light to reach the ground, potentially increasing the germination of shrubland species. Removing topsoil and leaf litter in addition to this may further increase the probability of seed germination.
