Project Goal Summary
Rock Creek is the source of water for the city of Vernonia Oregon. Over the year the riparian biffer zone has become overrun with invasive English ivy. The goal of this project is to remove in section this invasive plant and repeat the area with native vegetation. the hope is it will not only increase wildlife but help with water filtration.
Project Goals and News
One challenge is that the ivy has grown up trees. Ive seen several methods of how to remove yet and I know if you do it the wrong way damage can actually occur to the tree trunk. Measuring success would be making sure this ivy does not grow back after removal and especially after native re-planting.
