- This paper describes several deep planting techniques that require minimal or no follow-up irrigation to establish woody vegetation on disturbed riparian sites in the arid and semiarid southwestern USA. The techniques include: (1) planting dormant pole cuttings; (2) planting dormant whip cuttings; (3) planting tall-pot containerized stock; and (4) deep-planting of long-stem containerized stock.
