dc.description.abstract Restoration of landslides and unstable slopes can provide significant challenges. Steep slopes, low fertility levels, unstable soils, compacted tills, flowing silts and other adverse conditions are typical of many forest landslides. Successional reclamation (Polster, 1989) and soil bioengineering (Schiechtl, 1980) can be used to provide a self-sustaining vegetation cover on many forest landslides and unstable slopes. This paper presents techniques that can be used in the restoration of these sites. Special considerations for the use of these techniques in Interior locations are presented. Examples are drawn from the author's experience. en
