The Evolution of Turf Reinforcement Technology


This course is the finale of our three-part Expanding The Jobsite Management Toolbox Webinar Series—others include The Evolution of Sediment Control Technology and The Evolution of Erosion Control Technology. Save 20% and earn 3 PDH / 0.3 CEU with our full-series bundle!

Turf reinforcement defines one the erosion control industry’s most important innovations of the past 50 years. This remarkable technology allows for the use of vegetation in applications where such solutions were simply not possible before.

In basic terms, turf reinforcement provides permanent stabilization of the root and stem structure of vegetation, resulting in significant improvement in the ability of that vegetation to withstand the erosive forces of high-water flow. Coupled with strong environmental benefits, turf reinforcement matting installation costs are consistently just a fraction of the cost of hard armor solutions.

Join Forester University and returning speaker Peter Hanrahan (CPESC) for this live, educational webinar to learn how this industry-changing technology has evolved since its invention in the early 1970s. We will review case histories as well as examine design tools and reliable sources of independent testing data.

Learning Objectives 
By participating in this webinar, attendees will:

  • Develop a thorough understanding of how turf reinforcement mat technology has emerged and impacted the site development industry
  • Learn the performance capabilities of turf reinforcement mats and how their emergence has literally altered the landscape
  • Receive relevant case studies/examples of cost-effective solutions provided by turf reinforcement mats in many varied applications
  • Get exposed to a wide variety of resources, including independent testing data, available design tools, and jobsite assistance
