Now that Christmas is over, what shall we do with all the real trees?

I wanted to get the word out as to what to do with them. I suggested that the trees should be placed at a location in and around the Galveston area to help build up our sand dunes. A collection point should be established so as tree owners can drop them off for distribution.

Do you recall all the Christmas trees & picket fencing pat San Luis bridge
heading down to Red Snapper Inn. All along the beach after Rita 2005
100's of them.

We used to do that years ago on Bolivar, Now if the sheriff's dept. sees you they give you a ticket for littering.

Texas City is building dunes on the TC dike by putting layers of mulch along north side of the dike road. The mulch is produced by the tree grinder at the City Bio Sphere.

Christmas Trees can also become deadly projectiles during hurricanes.

What? Are you confused?

Galveston stopped us from placing old Christmas trees on the beach years ago. So we did them at Surfside beach. They appreciated the free help with the dunes.
