Document Description
The project would conduct field experiments on topics relevant to levee vegetation in California flood control systems and collect data to characterize the forces leading to windthrow of trees on levees and analyze tree root architecture to determine effects on levee slope stability. Studies would occur at six selected sites on levees along waterways in the Yuba County, Sutter County, Sacramento County and Stanislaus County.
