Selection, Production, and Use of Riparian Plant Materials for the Western United States
Jack R. Carlson
1991: Park City, UT
Riparian plantings are established to restore native plant communities,
stabilize streambanks and shorelines, restore fish and wildlife habitat, improve
surface and groundwater quality, and control weedy phreatophytes. Native
planting stock may be collected from local sources or provided by commercial
nurseries. Source guidelines are based on relatively narrow target areas inferred
from riparian site classifications and constrained by limited knowledge of the
genetic structure of plant populations. Riparian plant cultivars are developed with
specific structural attributes. Nurseries should emphasize production of large
plant materials, such as stumps and poles.
