The St-Adolphe Riparian Revegetation willow planting project was undertaken along a 100 m segment of the Red River to revegetate and stabilize this compromised section of riverbank.
The lower zone was 1,200 m² and consisted of willow cuttings, rooted tree plantings and grasses. Approximately 2,800 willow cuttings were installed. The upper zone was 1,800 m² and consisted of rooted tree plantings and native grasses. Native Plant Solutions was tasked with developing a revegetation strategy, detailed planting specifications, supervising construction, and performing site inspections. The St-Adolphe Riparian Revegetation design had to meet the satisfaction of the Government of Canada’s Department of Fisheries and Oceans.
