Recycle Your Christmas Tree and Help Rebuild the Jersey Shore

Trees can be dropped off at Shady Brook Farm.

Don't toss that Christmas tree to the curb. Instead, consider recycling it to help rebuild the Jersey Shore from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Island Beach State Park is instituting a pilot program to install discarded Christmas trees to help rebuild the dunes. The trees will be placed on their side, end to end, and secured in place in a manner similar to dune fencing. 

Shady Brook Farm is a drop off point for the effort.

Simply bring your old Christmas tree to Shady Brook Farm, 931 Stony Hill Road in Yardley, during regular business hours. (Ask for Chris or Tom if you have any questions.)

Shady Brook Farm is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

In the upcoming days, volunteers will bring the trees to Dominic Salazzo, who is organizing the effort on behalf of Island Beach State Park.
