Fiber logs Natural fiber logs for sale at a local hardware store in Cambridge MD. These logs are designed to be used in constructing a natural "living shoreline", as opposed to a hardened shoreline that employs a concrete bulkhead or stone rip rap. The former creates habitat for native plants and wildlife where the latter removes habitat. jute,log,shoreline,erosion,protection,buffer,climate change,sea level rise,storm,flooding,mitigation

Shoreline erosion control Conceptual diagram illustrating a hardened shoreline vs a natural shoreline. The hardened shoreline has concrete rip-rap or a sea wall. It can be very costly and can also interrupt natural shoreline processes and sand movement that can lead to increased erosion downdrift from the structure. A natural shoreline incorporates native vegetation with a buffer strip of sand and/or fiber logs. It filters runoff and traps sediment, actually widening the beach, and providing valuable shoreline habitat for wildlife. diagram,climate change,sea level rise,flooding,protection,erosion,shoreline,buffer,rip rap,bulkhead
