Trees for Riparian Plantings

Trees beside water courses provide shade and thus improve water quality and biodiversity. Fencing off streams and planting trees provides a natural filter that reduces siltatation and nutrient runoff into water courses. This means environmental benefits, aesthetic value and also provides satisfaction to the landowner.
