Each year thousands of Christmas trees are donated by Jefferson Parish residents and diverted from landfills and placed in the Barataria Basin by volunteers. These recycled trees are used to build wave dampening fences, located directly off the shore, which help reduce coastal erosion and provide critical habitat for wildlife. 

Coastal Treecycling


Trees must meet the following guidelines in order to be recycled:

No flocked trees
No artificial trees
No painted trees
No lights, garland, tinsel, ornaments, tree stands and plastic bags.
