DescriptionA variety of treatments have been employed to restore riparian areas affected by wildland fire on the Six Rivers National Forest in northwestern California. The Megram Fire began as a series of lightning strikes on August 23,1999, eventually burning 125,040 acres. Specific treatments have included contour felling of dead trees, straw mulching, placement of straw wattles, helicopter seeding of non-native, non-persistent barley, planting trees and shrubs, and introducing and/or reconfiguring woody debris designed to enhance stream channel stability. In addition, lessons learned from several riparian restoration projects implemented in non fire-affected areas can be applied to fire rehabilitation efforts.
