Vegetation Management for Successful Habitat Enhancement and Reclamation of Disturbed Lands
Designing and installing the vegetative component of restoration and reclamation projects requires a comprehensive understanding of existing conditions, site potentials, and desired future conditions. The basic principles of soil health and amendment, plant species selection, invasive species control, and erosion and sediment control will be addressed. Examples of techniques used in modern restoration and reclamation projects will be represented and discussed. For this presentation an emphasis will be placed on the revegetation of mine slopes, streambanks, and emergent wetlands.
