University of Minnesota Designing, Installing, and Managing Native Plantings (All day)

Designing, Installing, and Managing Native Plantings

Ecological restorations of small sites often rely on installing young plants to create the desired natural vegetation. Even large sites, which are typically seeded, may be supplemented with plantings. This course discusses successful steps for designing, installing, and managing a native species planting project. This course acts as a guide to making sound decisions for each of these critical steps. This course will cover important steps including deciding to plant, selecting species, choosing planting stock, creating a planting plan, preparing to plant, planting, and post-planting management.

Course Dates
November 9−December 20, 2015
March 21−May 1, 2016

This Course Covers How To

  • Evaluate whether there are sources of plants on the site or in the landscape that could contribute to revegetation
  • Determine which species will be best suited for a restoration planting
  • Select and acquire the optimal kinds of planting stock for site conditions and project goals
  • Develop a planting plan
  • Prepare a site to be planted
  • Installing large numbers of plants on a site as part of planned events
  • Manage sites following planting to promote vegetation establishment
