Live staking is the process of taking cuttings from trees and inserting them into stream banks in order to grow new trees. It does not require any technical training or heavy machinery, making it a practice that anyone can do. Detailed, step-by-step instructions are given on how live staking is done, which will encourage viewers to use this method for future restoration needs. Species information, alternative methods, potential difficulties, and firsthand experience are all shared.
