Minnesota is home to over 450 miles of state designated trout
streams. Some of these streams are experiencing warmer
temperatures affecting trout habitat and populations. Trees in a
riparian buffer can improve trout habitat by moderating stream
temperatures, providing woody debris, improving water quality and
stabilizing stream banks.
