This project addressed two specific problems: limited riparian forest structure, diversity and succession; and livestock access to the riparian area and stream. The planting sites lacked conifer seedlings in riparian area due to historic land management activities. Riparian was dominated by clusters of mature alder stands and understory shrubs.
Trees were planted on designated properties along the N. Fork of the Yachats River. A total of 0.5 stream miles were planted. A 4-strand wildlife friendly fence was constructed on one property to exclude livestock from riparian area and stream. These activities benefited the adjacent National Forest land by improving the riparian habitat and water quality of the connecting streams.
