VIDEO: Christmas Trees Repurposed to Stop Erosion

With the holidays over and Christmas trees dumped on the curb, a group of neighbors on the Broadneck peninsula, near Annapolis, came up with a plan to give those trees new life. It turns out that cut evergreens make great erosion-preventing barriers for Chesapeake Bay shorelines.

It’s a homegrown effort, Cheryl Costello reports, and volunteers hope to branch out in the future (pun intended).
