Flood Information



Resist the Urge to Replant Immediately
Give the soil a chance to dry out first.
Eating Flooded Garden Produce
If floodwater was contaminated with raw sewage, do not eat the produce it touched.
Flooding Affects on Soil and Plant Roots
When soils are completely flooded, oxygen is prevented from reaching the root system of trees and shrubs
Don't Be Too Hasty To Cut Limbs
Remove only those that are physically damaged or obviously dead.
Protect Plants from Beavers and Other Wildlife
Beavers and other wildlife can be displaced during floods and cause significant damage to trees and shrubs.
