Successful Re-vegetation Strategies on the Carr Fire in Northern California

William Agnew, MS, CPESC

This presentation gives insight into how re-seeding of high severity burn areas using native plant materials can mitigate the impacts of excessive erosion and save countless tons (kg) of sediment each year which would otherwise be transported to downstream locations.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Demonstrate how plant materials are an effective solution to mitigating erosion on disturbed lands.
  • Identify erosion control best management practices that compliment vegetation establishment.
  • Llearn about soil enhancement practices that encourage vegetation establishment and growth.
