STEEP SLOPE STABILIZATION

Restoration of landslides and unstable slopes can provide significant challenges. Steep slopes, low soil fertility, unstable soils, compacted tills, flowing silts, and other adverse conditions are typical of many forest landslides. Successional reclamation (Polster, 1989) and soil bioengineering (Schiechtl, 1980) can be used to provide a self-sustaining vegetation cover on many forest landslides and unstable slopes. Soil bioengineering or biotechnical slope stabilization is the use of living plant materials to perform some engineering functions, whether it be simple erosion control with grass and legume seeding or more complex slope stabilization with live cuttings and other plants. These techniques can be used in conjunction with conventional engineering.
