Phase 1: Removal of non-native trees, 2020

Russian elm, salt cedar and Russian olive trees were removed using an excavator and chainsaws. Pictured is a massive pile of elm, waiting to be cut into movable pieces and then run through a chipper.

This large elm was removed from the streambed and chipped, leaving the stand of cottonwoods in place. The cut elm stump was covered in plastic to solarize the wood and prevent resprouting.

Phase 2: Wetland revegetation, 2021
