The question is a tad vague but I will give it a shot:

Forests are of course closely related to water resources both because they obviously require water to survive but because they also play a role in conserving water and using it effectively when it comes in the form of precipitation, etc.

Depending on geological and geographical considerations, a forest can use water far more efficiently than a grassland because the shade from the trees allows more of the water to be used by organisms in the soil or other plants rather than evaporating without the benefit of shade cover.
