WoodStraw® ECM

Wood Strand Erosion Control Mulch

WoodStraw® is a patented, engineered wood strand erosion control material with highly effective wind and water erosion control characteristics useful for burned area emergency response (BAER), road maintenance/obliteration, mine reclamation, construction, and any other disturbed soil projects.

Key features and benefits include:

  • Performs better than agricultural straw in rainy and windy conditions
  • Naturally 100% weed and pesticide free
  • Promotes revegetation while increasing water infiltration
  • Minimizes surface and soil erosion and rilling – even on steep slopes
  • Easily applied by hand, straw blower, or helicopter
  • Suitable for use on construction sites, burned areas, mine reclamation, pipelines, roads powerlines, and other disturbed landscapes

Regulatory approvals: 

Many states, counties and agencies have unique requirements and approval processes for erosion control materials such as WoodStraw® mulch.
