This guide from Oregon State Extension describes six steps to help landowners, watershed organizations, agency staff, and others communicate about, plan, and implement successful riparian buffer plantings. The guide is designed for the Willamette Valley in Oregon, but much of it is applicable in Vermont/the Northeast, too. The authors describe selecting plant material, site preparation, planting, stewardship, and monitoring.
