Coir log for erosion control

Free coir logs for erosion control - available to Maragle and Coppabella Creek residents.

We have a limited number of coir logs available to landholders in targeted fire-impacted areas to assist with erosion control, sediment capture and to help protect habitat of the endangered Booroolong Frog.

Coir logs are easy to install as they are made from coconut husk and will break down over time, providing some protection and stabilisation while vegetation establishes. The logs are 200 mm x 2 m each. Install them in drainage lines and areas impacting waterways by securing with wooden stakes.

Coir logs (with stakes) are available at no cost to landholders in Booroolong Frog habitat areas of the Maragle and Coppabella Creek catchments as shown on the map.
