Discarded trees to be used to build sand dunes
The Christmas tree you threw out after the holiday just may prevent someone from losing their home in the next big storm. The Wall Department of Public Works normally collects discarded Christmas trees after the holiday season, brings them to the public works yard and then turns them into wood chips. But not this year, Wall Township Administrator Jeffry Bertrand said. This year the all trees collected are going to Bradley Beach, where that town is using them to bolster its sand dunes – a practice that officials there have said helped to gird against the worst of Hurricane Sandy’s wrath. “It’s a really good reuse,’’ Bertrand said. “And, frankly, it saves us money because we don’t have to spend the time turning them into chips.’’ Bradley …

Christie Visit to Bradley Beach focuses on importance of dunes, employment grants
With the whir of front loaders and bulldozers pushing sand on the beachfront behind him, Gov. Chris Christie today pointed to rebuilding an aggressive dune system as perhaps the most important step in restoring and safeguarding tourism, property and residents' lives along the Jersey Shore. After surveying the rebuilding of dunes flattened by Hurricane Sandy, Christie outlined how state grants for post-disaster employment needs were directly rebuilding the beachfront of Bradley Beach. Here, 12 workers were the beneficiaries of the National Emergency Grant, secured in the days following Hurricane Sandy. Christie said the grants had put 428 to work in 11 hurricane-ravaged towns statewide, with 658 more to be employed through state Department …
