How to Plan for and Plant Streamside Conservation Buffers with Native Fruit and Nut Trees and Woody Floral Shrubs

ANR-29 (CNRE-27P) One way to achieve both conservation and production in streamside zones is to choose tree and shrub species that provide useful and/or salable products. Examples include fruits, nuts, florals, timber, medicinals, and weaving and dying materials (Brooks, Gregersen, and Folliott 1994; Robles-Diaz-de-Leon and Kangas 1998; Klapproth and Johnson 2001; Shultz et al. 2009). Riparian forest buffers are areas near streams, rivers, or other bodies of water that have planted or naturally occurring trees, shrubs, and other vegetation. If riparian forest buffers are managed with food- and floral producing trees and shrubs, they can serve multiple purposes, such as generating revenue while also providing conservation benefits (Lowrance, Leonard, and Sheridan 1985; Welsch 1991; Prichard 1993; Palone and Todd 1997). For additional information please see Klapproth and Johnson’s (2009) publication addressing the science of riparian forest buffers. 8.5 x 11, 24 pages, 24#, DS, color, cover 110#, spiral bound\12\DWDFKXTC201155.png
