Resource Category: 
Cottonwood and Willow Pole Planting
Longstems and Tallpot Plantings

This document discusses riparian restoration lessons learned by the Dolores River Restoration Partnership over the last five years. Working across two states, four Bureau of Land Management offices, and five counties, the Partnership has had a number of successes, total failures, and projects somewhere in the middle. 

The document is organized into key revegetation components, including:

  • Passive versus active revegetation
  • Site selection
  • Species size and selection
  • Planting and seeding
  • Maintenance 

RiversEdge West's

mission is to advance the restoration of riparian lands through collaboration, education, and technical assistance.
