Abstract/Contents:States that "in terms of erosion control along streambanks, turfgrasses are far superior to trees in stabilizing soils and minimizing soil erosion." Also adds that "a counter response to the allegation that trees are superior in terms of grass clipping entering the water is that deciduous trees lose their leaves in the autumn and have the potential of adding major amounts of nutrients to stream and lake waters." Suggests mowing streambank turfgrass at a higher height of 3 to 4 inches.
