Streambank Revegetation and Protection: A Guide for Alaska
Plant Care and Preparation
The success of your revegetation project lies largely in your ability to properly select, collect, and prepare the approriate vegetation for site installation. There are many opportunities to revegetate different types of habitat, from wetland or riparian areas to upland areas, depending on the availability and identification of donor species and your site specifications. Always select a healthy plant community as a donor community and gain permission from the landowner before removing plant material. For harvesting plant material on state land, check the State's site for fees associated with commercial harvest (11AAC 05.010(a)(22)). Please consult an expert when identifying donor plants for use in revegetation projects so the correct species will be planted in appropriate growing environments.
