Chicken Creek Large Woody Debris and Planting

  • GRMW ID: 1920
  • Fiscal Year: 2014

Historic timber harvest and roading removed larger conifers from the valley bottom, reducing the future recruitment of large wood to the stream. Historic grazing has caused impacts to the riparian area. This project will improve the riparian area and wood in the stream through planting and large wood additions. . The project is located on 3 miles of Chicken and West Fork Chicken Creeks (starting at approximate RM 3). The Chicken Creek Large Woody Debris and Planting Project would place wood within 1.0 miles of Chicken Creek for a total of 13 structure sites. Approximately, 4000 deciduous seedlings, 500 conifer seedlings and 3000 deciduous cuttings will be planted within 2.0 miles of Chicken and West Chicken Creeks. Existing shrubs with heavy browse would be fenced to protect the shrubs from wild ungulates.
