Large debris (trees) can be transported along the river during flood events and accumulate in areas of the rivers. Locally the hydraulic conditions (water velocity, depth) can be modified and alter the type of habitats. As habitat preferences are related to both species and life-stage of fish, debris can be removed to recreate lacking habitats for targeted organisms.
