This paper describes the use of live poles for the stabilization of shallow slope failures in clay-silt soils. Design and construction techniques are summarized. Long-term monitoring of the slope performance is currently in progress. Measured performance data includes displacement, pore pressure and suction, moisture content, survival of willow poles, and lateral resistance provided by the poles. Preliminary results and potential benefits and problems are presented. Copyright ASCE 2008.
