Christmas Tree Sand Dune Initiative
This is our first year repurposing Christmas trees to prevent coastal erosion of our sand dunes. In the dunes, Christmas trees properly situated can help prevent erosion by trapping wind-blown sand to build up dunes . These trees were placed in an area where erosion has occured. It was a beautiful day and we had a great turn out. There was great interest from passersby as we walked down the beach carring our Christmas trees. We invited both local primary and seconary scools to get involved in this pilot programme.
