Fort Hood Range Revegetation


Erosion is the wearing away, washing away, and removal and redeposition of soil from the earth's surface by water, wind, or man.

Soil is the biologically active, unconsolidated mineral and organic material on the immediate surface of the earth that serves as a natural medium for the growth of land plants.

Reestablishing vegetation is an important activity in rehabilitating degraded lands, such as military training sites.

Erosion best management practices for Fort Hood include contour ripping, gully plugs/maneuver access structures, compost application, range planting, combat trail maintenance/hilltop access trails, and sediment retention structures.
