The Town of Topsail Beach will be collecting used Christmas trees after the holidays to be placed at the toe of the dune. These trees will be staked down in a linear fashion as recommended by various agencies and other areas that have done this in the past. The purpose is to collect sand through Aeolian action of the wind moving the sand particles that are captured by sand fencing and or other vegetative materials. This will help build the dunes that experience harsh wave action and escarpment during the winter ocean movements and Nor'easters. All Christmas trees, except artificial, may be placed at Town property at the Corner of Davis and Anderson in the marked area, immediately after Christmas and for the first few weeks of January. Help us protect and build the dune by bringing your discarded Christmas trees to us! Please contact Town Hall at 910-328-5841 and ask for Kurt Polzer for more details.
