This study served as a preliminary step to identify the optimal wood shreds blend for further testing in a larger field experiment at the hillslope scale. The goals of this study were to (1) determine differences in the material size distribution of three wood shred blends and the impact of those differences on the required mass application rates to achieve a desired ground cover, (2) determine the statistical significance of each wood shred blend in reducing runoff, sediment concentration, and rill formation from a burned soil, and (3) determine which wood shred blend best reduces runoff and sediment concentration
