In 2012 the Redwood Forest Foundation, owners of the Usal Redwood Forest, worked with Blencowe Watershed Management to add large logs and rootwads using the accelerated recruitment approach. This allows logs to adjust position under winter flows and create natural log jams. These instream structures increase channel and habitat complexity and provide both cover and high-flow refugia for juvenile salmonids. © Christopher Blencowe
