Select trees were cut within the park to provide wood for log structures. In-stream structures installed as part of the project included: woody riffles, constructed (rock) riffles, jazz riffles, ‘chunky’ riffles, rock & roll riffles, rock j-hooks, log j-hooks, log vanes, rock cross vanes, brush sills, log sills, rock sills, rock toe with vegetated soil lifts, rock toe, lunker habitat logs, root wads, and brush toe.

North State also implemented several site civil construction elements. These included two bridges and a culvert crossing.

For vegetation management services, North State was responsible for 7 acres of invasive species control. Targeted species included privet, honey suckle, English ivy, Russian olive, kudzu and tree of heaven.
