Description Riparian forests are part of a complex and interconnected ecosystem that extends from the headwaters to the estuaries. This presentation describes elements of silvicultural systems for riparian buffers on agricultural lands in large floodplains of Northwestern Washington State. Riparian buffers protect and enhance aquatic functions and salmonid habitat. Riparian management sustains in-stream large wood (LW) contributes to aquatic habitat complexity. This research uses growth modeling and... Silvicultural Engineering.
