Aspen Shaving Blanket

The Excelsior Blanket is a wood fiber erosion control mat designed for environmental support along banks, channels, roads, and other low-flow areas. Made from aspen wood shavings, these blankets provide a biodegradable erosion control option that can successfully stabilize shorelines until vegetation is able to take root. Standard models are sold by the roll and are designed to accommodate areas with low flows and slopes up to 2:1.

Similar to other erosion control options, aspen wood blankets are designed to stabilize a given location until roots can be established in the area. The typical lifespan for these blankets is anywhere from 12 to 18 months.
