DESCRIPTION
The project site is located near Wenatchee, Washington along the right bank of the Wenatchee River at river mile 1.4. The project is located on private property that is currently managed by the landowner as an apple and pear orchard. The current landowner is the third generation owner of the property and intends to remain managing the parcel for agriculture uses over the long term. The project consisted of installing native plants, an irrigation system and herbivory protection (exclusion fencing) along 5 separate planting areas where the existing riparian vegetation was minimal or non-existing. The combination of the five planting areas totals approximately 1,375 linear feet (or 1.26 ac) with an average planting buffer width of 35 feet, although some of the planting areas may have a buffer ranging from 50 to 75 feet. The 5 planting areas were planted with 679 native trees and shrubs in early April 2010 by the Washington Conservation Crew (WCC). The WCC replaced and fixed portions of the wildlife exclusion fence by adding in additional fence posts and fence fabric as needed. The purpose of the fence is to minimize the impacts of beaver activitiy to the riparian planting project and the landowners adjacent orchard.
