Dormant Willow Post Method
Roseboom (1995) reported that for bioengineering work on a 600-ft reach at Court
Creek, Illinois, it took 5 men two 8-hr days to install 675 willow (12- ft tall) posts on 4-ft
centers. This also included installation of a rock toe (20 tons of 10" riprap) with a coir
geotextile roll along 300 ft. Also, 60 cedar trees were laid and cabled along the the toe of the
slope to trap sediment. This included an excavator operator along with the 4 other men
previously mentioned. This equates to about 17 posts per man-hour that includes harvesting
