Grass deterioration, also known as animal tracks or desire lines, is one of the new features implemented in Animal Crossing: City Folk. The game is able to keep track of your movements throughout town, and will wear down the grass in certain areas.

This process has been dubbed "desertification" by some in the Animal Crossing community. Many players seek to prevent desertification in their towns, not only for aesthetic reasons, but because the lack of grass can become a game-breaking issue, causing some insects, such as the Dung Beetle, or furniture, such as the Snowman Series, to be impossible to collect.
