Description
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.
