Document Description
Vegetation management. Vegetation and debris jams in the stream channel will be removed to enhance stream flow through the site. Small trees growing in the stream bed will be cut at or above ground level and may be treated with an herbicide, though no trees greater than six (6) inches diameter at breast height (DBH) would be removed. Trees growing along the streambed will be trimmed of horizontal branches to a height of six to eight feet, leaving a canopy over the stream to shade the stream. Invasive species such as Cape ivy will be removed from the site, bagged, and disposed of at a landfill. All pruning will be done by crews using hand tools including chainsaws. Willow cuttings will be planted at specific locations throughout the site to stabilize the Streambank. All work will be conducted when the streambed is dry and devoid of water.
