North American Green23 March 2011 – Tensar’s North American Green has led the erosion control industry in offering the most complete line of high quality, performance-proven erosion control products since 1985. Today, a U.S.-manufactured addition to that line salutes a patriotic commitment and delivers quality and consistency currently unduplicated in foreign counterparts.

North American Green coir logs are the only compressed coconut coir logs that are made in America. Used for sediment control, dewatering applications, shoreline protection and re-vegetation, North American Green coir logs offer the highest performance available in the U.S.

Coir logs are ideal for use with North American Green’s Vmax3®, ShoreMax® and Bionet® products in a wide variety of shoreline stabilization applications. Coir logs function in many ways. Along the toe of shorelines and streambanks, coir logs act as a wave break or flow barrier. On slopes and along perimeters, coir logs trap sediment while filtering water. Other places to use North American Green coir logs include:

  • Slope, lake and reservoir shorelines
  • Beaches, dunes, tidal, estuary and surge transition zones
  • Wetland and riparian areas

North American Green coir logs are available in a variety of diameters, densities and netting types to satisfy the needs of nearly any project and are available through Tensar International Corporation’s nationwide network of authorized North American Green distributors.
