On this page, some components of Cambisols vision are briefly explained
Soil is life
Cambisol sees soil as a very important resource. What has been developed over a long time can be destroyed in a few minutes. Unfortunately, we often treat the soil like dirt.
A healthy soil creates spongy conditions to assure a better water management for longer dry periods.
And remember: once soil is lost through erosion, you will not get it back..
Importance of vegetation
I stress the importance of vegetation because of several reasons
The energy of rainfall is reduced as a result of less throughfall
Root system holds soil to prevent soil erosion. Non-vegetated soils are like a skinless body
Leaves provide shade that decrease the radiative forces and lower the temperature below the plant with up to 40%
Better water management
Vegetation can improve the healthiness of the soil causing spongy conditions: better storage for longer periods
Plant growth results in fresh air and CO2 uptake in the plant and soil
How I work:
With Cambisol I focus on various aspects of taking care of soil and vegetation in a better way.
Green, Growth, Energy
Design, Advice, Execution
Running projects are supported with research and aerial footage to create a better overview, develop accurate maps and come to a clear and location specific design and advice for a sustainable land and water management. See the various project focus pages for more information.
