    Description

    Two sites on the Sacramento River near Red Bluff and Colusa, California were planted with seven native tree species plus valley elderberry (a shrub) in an effort to mitigate for the loss of woody riparian vegetation from bank protection construction projects in the area. The stateowned environmental easements on terraces on the river side of the levees had been planted unsuccessfully once before, following failure of native species to regenerate naturally. The new (1987-88) effort includes experimental plantings that are considered to represent state-of- the-art techniques. These are designed to protect the plants and promote survival and growth but require minimal maintenance activity. Fifteen different types of container stock as well as live cuttings of some species have been planted in a variety of situations, including deep-augered, backfilled holes. All plants were fertilized and protected from herbivory and insect damage. The 3-year monitoring program is yielding data on survival/mortality, growth rate, and plant vigor.
