Vegetation Control

Vegetation control is the use of wetland or upland vegetation (new plantings or preserving existing vegetation) to control or prevent further erosion. Vegetation may be planted or allowed to colonize naturally. This method can be employed on most shorelines with minimal wave action. This is an environmentally friendly, low cost option that will allow wetland vegetation to migrate with sea level rise and maintain a natural shoreline. Vegetation control also maintains a natural "living shoreline".
