NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 14: A person passes discarded Christmas trees along a sidewalk on January 14, 2014 in New York City. With thousands of trees being thrown out following the holidays, the New York City Parks Department is planning to use trees donated to the city's Mulchfest recycling program to create dunes along portions of beach at the Rockaways to help fight erosion following Hurricane Sandy. The man-made dunes, which will include up to 3,000 old Christmas trees, are part of a larger program by the city and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to strengthen the beach at Rockaway.
