Planting Mitigation Projects
The RCDTC partners with CalTrans to mitigate for construction by replanting native species disrupted by infrastructure projects. Maintenance of mitigation sites includes removal of invasive species such as star thistle. Mitigation sites are monitored until the plants are satisfactorally established. Below are a list of projects the RCDTC currently monitors:
This project mitigated for a new bridge installed by Tehama County Public Works over Thomes Creek along 99W north of Richfield. California native oaks, willows, and roses were planted to mitigate for this construction.
