Details:

Many tree species have the ability to sprout from stumps and roots after they are cut down. Globally, millions of hectares of seemingly treeless farm and grazing lands still contain living tree stumps with this ability to sprout new shoots (stems). Trees also have regenerative capacity from soil seed banks. However, continuous grazing, cutting for firewood and clearing and burning for land cultivation deny these seeds and stems the chance to become trees.
