Task 4: Vegetation management

This task identifies sites where vegetative conditions are contributing to erosion. Establishing native trees, shrubs and grasses keeps soils, banks and floodplains in place and functioning properly. Disturbed areas in projects under other tasks are seeded to help jumpstart revegetation. In some cases, fences are built to allow vegetation to recover. A demonstration project using goats to reduce sagebrush and tamarisk is being conducted as part of this task.
