Species selection is an important step in the design of effective and efficient living snow fences. A species matrix can assist in the plant selection for living snow fences by providing a palette of suitable species and a summary of relevant plant traits to compare and contrast species. A species matrix for living snow fences in New York State has been created in conjunction with these fact sheets.
