A picture is worth a thousand words and much hand waving!

A picture is worth…….. 

Recently I have had some inquiries about how to plant willow cutting - some questions were about "Brushlayering" or how to vegetate rip rap with willow stakes.
 
Last week I had to put a "Live Pole Drain" in a river bank/slope that had a spring piping out.  I had to explain to my students what a LPD was by much waving of the hands! 

I am reminded why we developed the Typical Drawings in Erosion Draw 5.0, BioDraw 3.0 and ESenSS.  "A picture is worth a thousand words and much hand waving".

So while digging through some of my old "Typical Drawings" it occurred to me to share some with you all.  Maybe these will help you incorporate some willow cuttings into your work this fall.  We don't call our company Salix for nothin!

Good Luck
