Hi, Iā€™m a very experienced secondary teacher - over 30 years.

The leaves from the trees provide shade (shelter) for the crops from direct sun. This makes temperatures under the trees cooler and because there is less direct sunshine evaporation rates are reduced - therefore moisture is maintained.
