Christmas Trees to be Used for Dune Building in Ortley Beach

Toms River Township is asking residents to bring their Christmas trees to Ortley Beach to help rebuild the sand dunes there.

Between now and February 1, 2016, Christmas trees may be brought by residents to the Lord House lifeguard station, located between 3rd and 4th Ave. in Ortley Beach, and placed inside the fence. These trees will then be placed on the dunes by Township personnel, in order to promote dune growth. Do not place trees directly on the beach. If you wish to participate, please ensure that all ornaments, lights, tinsel, garland etc. have been removed from the trees.
