Southeastern Louisiana University is urging people to donate their Christmas trees to help save the state’s coast rather than throwing them in the trash. Rob Moreau, manager of SLU’s Turtle Cove Environmental Research Station, says when you put recycled trees into the marsh it can help the shoreline in many ways.

Even with the dry summer, the supply of real Christmas Trees
in Louisiana is still plenty. Christmas Tree Farmer Clark Gernon, owner of
Shady Pond Tree Farm in Pearl River, says the trees are fine, just not as tall
as they typically would be.

You've probably accumulated plenty of trash this month during the Holidays and the Department of Environmental Quality is urging you to recycle. DEQ spokesman Greg Langley says more garbage is produced in the month of December than any other month. He says if you've got a lot of boxes, many businesses will accept used packing supplies.
