The Undervalued trees of L.A. from LA Times Editorial p.9, January 2, 2019

Paragraph 7 and 8 Quotes

"The roots also capture and store rainwater, which helps the city make better use of its water supply at a time of more extreme weather conditions and wider swings between periods of drought and flooding."
