    Description

    Long tubes are a new stock type developed specifically for restoration of challenging sites such as disturbed riparian areas. Constructed out of polyvinyl chloride plastic pipe, long tubes have a Vexar lining to promote good root growth and easier extraction. The expandable stinger is a new invention that was developed to outplant long tubes. The stinger is attached to an excavator, which hydraulically operates a metal beak that holds the long tubes in place while they are planted. The expandable stinger has been used to plant stream gravel bars and road cut and fill slopes, but has other potential applications.
