LETTER: Catchments need trees

In reply to Noel Jackson (Letters, 28/1), have a close look at where our water catchments are and you will notice they are in higher altitude and forested areas. These areas are commonly called rainbelts and were usually uninhabited until recently. High-density forests attract high rainfall; cut down the forests and there's much less rain.
