Natural structures defend against storm surges more deftly than concrete barriers. Rather than throw up a shield against an oncoming wave, “living shorelines” feint and parry, absorbing the impact over a broad expanse. According to a 2012 study, a “sufficiently wide and tall vegetation canopy” can reduce flooding by up to 40 percent, meaning shorelines endure less damage and recover more quickly from severe storms. Natural defenses also support biodiversity by lending a home to birds, fish and other creatures.
