In September 2016, Trout Unlimited in coordination with the Lyme Redwood Timber Company, the Nature Conservancy, and Blencowe Watershed Management designed and installed instream 13 large streamside conifers with their rootmasses intact. To implement this pilot project, an excavator and bulldozer were used to uproot and topple large conifers (mostly redwood) into the channel within the existing 10 mile South Fork Ten Mile project area.  The rootmasses will act as anchors or “key jams” in the system by retaining loose logs that can become mobile during high streamflow events. The objective of the project is to create a series of stabilization sites that will recruit previously implemented project wood, while creating additional elements of structural complexity.  © Trout Unlimited
