The forest of Lynn Woods ensures that soil erosion does not occur, replenishes rivers and streams, and provides fresh water for drinking for locals. When seeds, leaves, and branches fall in Lynn Woods, they emit nutrients into the soil keeping it fertile and rich. The woods also collects rainfall rain on branches and leaves and facilitates absorption into the ground and proper dispersion of water back into the waterways and atmosphere. The continuous efforts by the Friends of Lynn Woods in preserving Lynn Woods ensure that nutrients and water are distributed naturally and natural calamities such as extreme droughts and floods do not occur.
Lynn Woods is home to several species of insects, plants, and animals, many of which offer medicine, food, and conveniences. By promoting conservation of Lynn Woods, the Friends of Lynn Woods creates room for research and discovery which may give rise to more disease cures.
Since it is not possible to completely avoid deforestation, Friends of Lynn Woods addresses measures through which to control deforestation. Some of these measures include not cutting down immature and young trees as much as possible, as well as avoiding large-scale commercial deforestation. Some of the long-run measures adopted by the Friends of Lynn Woods include practices such as selective cutting and clear-cutting.
One of the deadliest and most common factors responsible for the loss of forests is fires. Fires can be accidental, intentional, or result from natural causes. It is very challenging to control a fire once it spreads in a forest. Friends of Lynn Woods (with aid from GC Services) has taken various precautionary initiatives to ensure that Lynn Woods is protected from fire incidents. Some of these initiatives include clearing out dry trees and leaves and making fire lanes.
