Willow faggots and fascines are a natural, environmentally sound product that have a multitude of uses including reducing soil erosion, river bank stabilisation, coir roll protection, spillway and shoreline protection. They are easy to install and are a long lasting solution.
Faggots and fascines are tight bundles of small diameter willow bound together, and are particularly effective at providing protection to vulnerable river bank areas. Multiple faggots can be installed with willow stakes to form a mattress which helps to offer protection on steep river banks and collect sediment in lower areas. We offer both live and seasoned stakes or pins for this use.
Once used as a fuel, faggots are now primarily used for river bank stabilisation work as part of bunds, revetments or mattresses. Browse our range of environmentally sound products.Read more about us
