Streambank Revegetation and Protection: A Guide for Alaska
Plant Care and Preparation



Transplant generally refers to a single plant that is relocated to a new site. Trees, shrubs and well-established perennials are candidates for transplanting. Transplants are most frequently used in landscaping applications; however, transplants can add diversity to revegetation projects. Transplants provide a means to include species that do not root readily from dormant cuttings in revegetation plantings; for example, they can be planted on a streambank before a brush mat is installed.
