The Gulf oil disaster put a national spotlight on Louisiana's long-running battle with coastal erosion. From freshwater diversions to barrier island restoration, the state and its citizens have long used any and every method available to slow down wetland loss and help reclaim the state's vanishing coast.Every January for the past 20 years, thousands of Louisiana residents have also sent their discarded Christmas trees down to the wetlands to join the battle. The trees are used to make barriers that prevent erosion and help limit the impacts of wave action.
