Streambank stabilization

I know I have written about his before, but it bears writing about again. People who farm land next to creeks are always battling stream dynamics. Streams move any time there is a disturbance on their banks. Overhanging trees falling in are the biggest culprit. Maybe this fall would be a good time to work on them. Right now it looks like harvest may be over early. The big thing to help yourself out is to get the snags out of the channels. The next thing to do is to remove trees that have potential to fall in the creek. You may need a 404 permit from the Corps of Engineers if you are uprooting stumps.
