RestoreNet treatments

August 2018 (approx.)

Detailed Description

RestoreNet locations are testing commonly used restoration techniques, including pitting, mulching, and above-ground micro sites. Here, metal crosses create an above-ground microsite that can increase soil moisture by providing shade and collecting debris under some conditions. The project will illustrate which techniques work to establish plants depending on local conditions (like soil type) and climate variables (like mean annual precipitation).
