Live stakes are cut sections of woody plants that are placed in a slope

Live stakes are tip cuttings derived from wetland tree species. Live stakes are blunt cut to drive in edges of ponds, lakes or areas of wetlands. Live stakes develop a strong and stable root system and eventually produce large trees. They work well in muddy areas where trees with roots cannot be planted.

Planting live stakes is a great way to control erosion. The live stakes are cut from a hardy species which will take root easily in the soil. The roots will help to stabilize the sloped soil as the live stakes grow into shrubby bushes.Planting live stakes is done in a number of areas to prevent erosion. One of the areas that live stakes are most often used is in stream banks. Stream banks very quickly erode due to the moving water and the wetness of the soil.

 

 Live stakes slow down this erosion process in stream banks significantly, bringing stability to the stream bank that wasn’t possible before. Live stakes are also great for hillside property that suffers erosion due to gravity. They are also useful in areas with high precipitation that suffer a lot of erosion due to runoff. The best times for placing live stakes are in the fall and spring. These are the best times to plant them to ensure that the cuttings will root well. If live stakes are planted in the summer or winter, they will be unlikely to take root.Planting live stakes is a great way to control erosion with a natural method. It is a method that is inexpensive and highly effective. Anyone experiencing problems with erosion should give live stakes a try.

Fascines Are Perfect For Stream Bank Restoration For Soil Retention

Fascines are branches from wetland trees and shrubs which are bundled together to secure sediment plus stop soil erosion. When placed horizontally  stream-banks helps to stabilize and slow down water to stop soil erosion. Fascines are bundles together and layed in trenches then stakes down. They will grow roots and stabilize the soil.

Brush layers are live tree branches placed in a small trench in contours of a stream-bank in between layers of existing soil.

These are used to complete a stream bank restoration.

Live Stakes 
Live stakes: Live stakes are live wood cuttings that come from various types of plants. At first glance, these wooden stakes look like they don’t serve a function in society, but don’t be fooled because live stakes serve several useful purposes. One of their most important roles is to generate a smooth roof surface, which can become stable by renewing soil particles and merging them to create a whole entity. Another feature that these plant cuttings offer to society is that they help improve the visual appeal of a garden by acting as a home for several wild plants, and they are used to anchor down certain materials and plants. These cuttings grow to be 3 to 8 ½ inches in diameter and 2 to 4 inches in length. 
 
Black willow: The black willow otherwise known as the Salix Nigra is a species of willow that grows in the eastern regions of North America. This type of willow tree is characterized by its impressive stature, which reaches heights of 33 to 98 ft tall. The black willow is a deciduous tree that has a thick and sturdy bark made out of willow that is black to dark brown. Besides, the shoots produced by these trees range in color from yellow to brown and even purple. 
 
Elderberry: The elderberry is a mixture of 5 to 30 different kinds of minuscule trees that belong in the family of Adoxaceae. But in past years, this plant was placed in a separate genus altogether: in the honeysuckle family. This plant serves several functions in society, one of which is as food. However, some parts of the elderberry are poisonous; therefore, the sap is extracted very steadily and carefully. Also, these plants have been used in cultivation as showy flowers. 
 
Sand bark willow: These trees are classified in the genus known as Salicylic, which features around 400 types of similar trees and shrubs. The sand bark willow trees tend to grow in cold, moist regions, and they are a type of deciduous tree. The sand bark willows produce a liquid-like and sticky sap that contains high levels of salicylic acid, and they also have a very tough bark made out of resistant wood. Another thing that this tree has is very thick foliage, which is characterized by a long and elongated shape that looks somewhat droopy. Finally, these trees produce small flowers that vary in color. 
 
 
Elder bark willow: The elder bark willow is a species of tree that grows in specific regions such as Eastern Europe and Western and Eastern Asia. This tree is a medium-sized deciduous willow that is a fast grower, and it rises to become 10 to 30 meters in stature. Also, this tree produces a very thick bark, but it is prone to develop several diseases that minimize its lifespan such as the Watermark Disease. Also, this particular tree serves several functions such as medical uses and cultivation uses. Finally, these trees can easily form hybrid versions of themselves.
