Stream Bank Restoration

Stream bank restoration is the process of bringing a stream bank that’s washed, back to its original condition by planting species of shrubs native to the area. Erosion can be decreased and a natural habitat for wildlife can be formed through this process. Restored banks will serve as a filtering media to runoff into stream, and a protector against human interaction. Willow is an ideal plant for this process due to its fast growth and easy adaptation. Willow should be grown in rows according to desired thickness, each row being a different variety.

Willow will be sold as 20 inch cuttings in 25 foot increments.
