Today, some ornamental plants are used in soil reclamation and erosion
prevention activities, targeting different landscape restoration purposes.
Naturally occurring erosion can be exacerbated by human
interventions, especially in vegetation. For this reason, afforestation
and improvement of the existing vegetation are of great importance in
planning areas where landscape restoration works are needed such as
preventing erosion, soil rehabilitation and reducing the toxic effects of
environmental pollutants. With this study, the willow plant, which has
an important place in sustainable environment and landscape
restoration studies, has been evaluated. Willow is a very valuable plant
in terms of natural resources in the world.
In particular, this plant species is a valuable plant that varies according
to the conditions and geographical location of each region in terms of
number and diversity, many species are found naturally on the
waterfront, resistant to extreme climatic conditions, and mostly solitary
in landscape design works other than repair.
