HAMMOND, LA (WAFB) -

Southeastern Louisiana University's Turtle Cove Environmental Research Station delivered recycled Christmas trees Friday to help shore up area eroding wetlands. The trees when placed along the marsh shorelines collect sediments and allow for grasses to grow into and around them, thereby creating a ‘Christmas tree level' that bolsters the shoreline and helps prevent erosion from the wave action.

Residents donated the trees after the holiday season. By recycling the trees, residents are helping to limit the amount of refuse going into the landfill.

Making our trip to Costco (with the 11-year-old-on-the-fence-of-not-believing-in-Santa-making-this-likely-our-last-magical-Christmas-ever son) for a tree even more pathetic….Wanna see? pic.twitter.com/YDIZMtV0ke

He was pleasantly surprised that the lame tree he thought we picked out was taller than expected…and nicer. I love the "Charlie-Brownish" quality of yours, +Ronnie Bincer  and I mean that as a compliment.
