One way to stabilize the river banks of Sistan bioengineering are using. Penetration of plant roots in the soil on the slope of the soil as soil reinforcement in concrete may be armed. This increases the soil shear strength and slope stability soil. In recognition of this process and the use of appropriate species, the environment and resistant roots, dirt slope stabilization projects will be done in a scientific way. In this study, field survey was conducted to identify the native plants of the region. In this context, the dominant native plant species identified, the Tamarix,tamarix aphylla, willow, Euphrates poplar, eucalyptus and reed is. The examples of roots grown in the riverine plant species were collected. And then the samples under standard conditions that natural moisture was retained, transferred to the laboratory and the tensile strength of the roots examined and tested. Then the measurement data with the rest of the evaluated. According to the results indicated that Eucalyptus trees and tamarisk trees in the river of higher tensile strength than any other region and are due to the beneficial effects of native plants, it is recommended to arming and sustainability Sistan River used.
