Abstract: This technical note is a product of the Ecosystem Management and Restoration Research Program (EMRRP) work unit titled “Techniques for Reestablishing Riparian Hardwoods in Arid and Semi-arid Regions.” The objectives of this work are to provide technology to improve capabilities of restoring riparian areas in arid and semiarid regions. The work unit focuses on site evaluation and selection, hardwood species selection, planting techniques, and long-term monitoring protocols. This technical note supports the Corps’ mission of ecosystem restoration as well as established environmental operating principles by promoting ecosystem sustainability and recognizing the interdependence of life and the physical environment. This publication addresses the establishment of a monitoring program to gauge progress toward meeting restoration project objectives.
