Bankside trees and shrubs are an important element in landscape enhancement. Within stream regulation, we should try to propose necessary interventions to the river profile and its closest surroundings with maximum respect for existing vegetation. Having carried out technical adjustments, it is necessary to propose, in liaison with competent specialists, and to provide for the implementation of new planting, or reconstruction of riparian and accompanying stands. The planting of, and the consequential care for, bankside trees and shrubs should not be underestimated as unplanted areas within natural succession become overgrown with self-seeding species whose unsuitable location and species structure may impair the stability of slopes, flow ratios in the riverbed and, even in aesthetical terms, they do not have to necessarily make a good impression.
