Recycle That Christmas Tree and Protect the Crystal Coast Beaches!
Well Folks, with the Holiday Season quickly coming to an end, Christmas Trees will be finding their way to the end of driveways, and then off to the landfills or somewhere else! Don't let your tree become one of them.
The fabulous Fort Macon State Park in Atlantic Beach, North Carolina can put your retired Christmas Tree to use! Just drop your undecorated tree off at the Drop Station located behind the Bath House in the Public Beach Parking area and they will strategically place each tree in the dunes. The dunes not only serve as protection from the many Tropical Storms that visit us each year, they also help preserve and maintain vegetation.
Your gift giving can continue throughout the year by recycling your Christmas Tree! Make sure you remove all ornaments and decorations from the tree and of course, NO Artificial Trees. Just Head East on Fort Macon Blvd. Once inside the Park, follow the "Christmas Trees" signs, and look for the large pile of trees behind the bath house.
When the weather permits, stop by and take a hike through the dunes at Fort Macon State Park (you will find the trail at the rear of the East Parking Area). You will enjoy some of the most amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean and Bogue Sound from the top!
