Recycling Trees to Preserve the Beach

Last week several volunteers brought back a proven method of rebuilding dunes. The Surfrider Foundation Cape Fear Chapter, coordinated with Town of Carolina Beach Government, NC, to put together a Dune re-building program using recycled Christmas trees.  Partnering with Island Women, Island Men, and other organizations, volunteers "planted" about 50 trees on the north end of Carolina Beach, helping to rebuild natural habitat, protect ocean front property, and divert the old trees from the landfill. They hope to expand the program to other beaches.
