Title: Umpqua Basin tree revetment project 2006 environmental assessment
Author: United States. Bureau of Land Management. Roseburg District Office
Abstract: The DSWCD proposes to improve stream channel conditions (selected from approximately 130 stream miles) entirely on privately owned and managed lands by placing and securing tree revetments along streambanks, removing invasive brush, and planting native vegetation along streambanks and riparian areas. Revetments are structures, such as clumps of Christmas trees, secured to streambanks, positioned to catch sediment, and slow stream velocities. This would improve overall stream conditions and water quality by adding structure to riparian systems. Tree revetments are an effective method for landowners to prevent or control streambank erosion as part of an overall riparian zone restoration process.
