Coir logs, also known as coir rolls, coconut fibre rolls, or coconut sticks, are tubes lined with loose but tightly packed coconut fibre and are then covered with coir netting. Aussie Environmental Coir logs are lightweight and simple to mount – suitable for building inspection systems, maintaining vegetation, handling flux velocity shifts, forming channels and strengthening shorelines. These Logs are 100% biodegradable and can fit in with the environment providing animals and plants shelter over time. The logs are lightweight and can bend across river channels and natural plants. In open drainage, coir logs may be used to reduce water flow and collect sediments, or used in streams and waterways to build a natural barrier buffer for plants and soil.
Uses of coir logs:
- Used to limit water flow and collect sediments for river channels, simmers and waterways
- water-absorbent coir fabrics are 100% organic and fully decomposable
- Organic matter and seeds trap provides an optimal micro-climate for new plants to cultivate and grow
- Could be used around sides of the river and waterways to reinforce channels and suppress wave activity.
