4.1 Live staking is a soil bioengineering technique used to provide erosion and sedimentation control after plants have become fully established by increasing infiltration, slowing or redirecting runoff, and trapping seed and sediments. A successful live staking application provides mechanical surface slope stabilization, aesthetics, water quality and habitat enhancement. The ability of live staking to function properly depends on the quality and correctness of the materials utilized, the means and methods of installation, and proper consideration of site characteristics. It is imperative that the live staking develops root and top growth.View Less
