Strategic Wood Addition to Improve Stream Habitat

Rivers were cleared for floating logs in Vermont's 1800's.

Many of Vermont’s streams are currently lacking a very important habitat feature, large woody material. Mature forests naturally contribute large woody material to streams, where it provides habitat for fish and other aquatic organisms and contributes to natural stream functions.
