Re-vegetation of Sites with Vegetation Removal

If removal of vegetation is required within project access or staging areas, the disturbed areas shall be replanted with native species, and the area will be maintained and monitored for a period of two years after replanting is complete to ensure the revegetation effort is successful. The standard for success is 60% survival of plantings or 80% ground cover for broadcast planting of seed, after a period of two years. Any non-biodegradable fencing materials shall be removed after plantings are adequately established. If revegetation efforts will be passive (i.e., natural regeneration), success will be defined as total cover of woody and herbaceous material equal to or greater than pre-project conditions.
