Our Mission

Polster Environmental Services is a leading expert in soil bioengineering, a method of using living plant materials to stabilize steep and unstable slopes. With over 40 years of experience in the field, we are committed to restoring land to its natural state and creating sustainable, long-lasting solutions.

Our pioneering techniques, such as using willows, cottonwood, and red-osier dogwood, not only stabilize the problem site but also foster the growth of other species, including conifers. This creates a diverse and healthy ecosystem on the slope, which is both cheaper and longer-lasting than traditional methods such as concrete.

Live Staking

Live staking is inserting a live cutting of willow or popular into the ground. Low cost and a high success rate.

Wattle Fences

Wattle fencing is a willow retaining wall with a terraced design. Helpful in stabilizing slopes and controlling erosion.

More Methods

At Polster Environmental we have many different techniques to utilize living species to fix a wide variety of issues.

100% Natural

At Polster Environmental Services, we have developed a wide range of soil bioengineering methods to treat common soil failures. Our experts are skilled in using techniques such as wattle fences, live reinforced earth walls, live stiles, modified brush layers, brush layers, live pole drains, live palisades, live silt fences, live bank protection, and live gravel bar staking. These methods can be used individually or in combination to solve complex problems.

Our soil bioengineering systems are built using living cuttings of pioneering plants, initiating the natural recovery process of successional systems. We are dedicated to providing sustainable and long-lasting solutions that restore the land to its natural state and foster the growth of diverse and healthy ecosystems.

Soil bioengineering techniques are sustainable because they use living plant materials to stabilize problem sites, which can continue to grow and evolve over time. These techniques are also cost-effective because they often use locally-sourced materials and can be constructed by relatively untrained crews or volunteer groups. Additionally, soil bioengineering techniques can provide long-lasting protection from erosion and effective riparian vegetation that is congruent with the natural vegetation in the riparian zone, reducing the need for expensive and frequent maintenance.
