    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Plants can cause both mechanical and chemical weathering. They cause mechanical weathering by their roots which grow inside rock cracks where soil has collected and eventually crack them. This can also happen in streets or sidewalks.

    They cause chemical weathering with their roots, which release acid or other chemicals, onto rocks, which then forms cracks, and breaks apart.

    Plants may decrease chemical weathering by binding secondary products and isolating unweathered minerals from meteoric water.
