How Wetland Restoration Plants Benefit the Environment 

The ecological gains from wetlands are numerous and varied. As a boon to water quality and repositories of floodwaters, these landscape features are much more than just swamps. They serve as home for myriad fish and wildlife species while acting as a drainage point and filter in larger watersheds. Central to these activities are the many forms of flora that grow in wetland areas. Without the presence of these necessary plants, to be sure, wetlands would have little relationship to the surrounding ecosystems. Fostering and--in some cases--re-introducing these organisms is essential for wetlands to fulfill their role. 

 

Trees

 

 

 Among the beneficial wetland vegetation are trees. While wetland trees vary from region to region, some species are more common. 

 

American Sycamore

 

 

 Planting American sycamore (Platanus occidentalis) trees is best done in shallow swamps, river bottoms and sloughs. Extremely tolerant of flooding, this tree provides seeds to songbirds (finches, e.g.) and fruit to fauna such as beavers, muskrats, squirrels and even white-tail deer. As the trees age, they convey shelter and cover to owls, chimney swifts and wood ducks. 

 

Weeping Willow

 

 

Salix babylonica is known to take root quickly, and grow just as rapidly. Famous for its low-reaching branches and narrow leaves, the weeping willow is the first to bear leaves and the last to lose them. It can grow to 40 feet in height and 35 feet in its branches span. A popular nesting place for birds and small mammals, this tree's seeds, leaves and fruit are enjoyed by rabbits, beavers and deer.

 

Emergent Plants

 

 

 Emergent plants are so called because they are rooted in soil typically under water, but their leaves, stems and procreative components are above the surface.

 

Cattails

 

 

 With lengthy (four to nine feet), flattened leaves and distinctive flourishing spikes, cattails are thought by many property owners to be a problem. These plants tend to evolve into thick stands due to fast growth and reproduction. In their native marshes, they harbor birds and fish...and the insects they feed. Their stems regulate the flow of water while snaring sediment and silt. Overall, cattails are excellent protection against erosion.

 

Rushes

 

 

 A rush produces leaves that look like hollow stems, and its stalk is cylindrical. Fish spawn amidst its flowering vegetation. In addition, snails, which feed on rotting leaves--thrive in rushes, and serve as food for a diversity of species. Certain rushes are also used decoratively in water gardens.

 

Floating Aquatic Plants

 

 

 These flora gain nutrients from the water, and are not rooted in the soil beneath. Frogbit, water hyacinth and water lettuce, for example, keep algae under control while providing needed shade for aquatic creatures.

 

 These are few organisms that create and preserve a robust wetland ecosystem. Planting them strategically affords improved health to the natural world.
