Oyster Shells Banned From Landscaping

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH -- Oyster shells no longer have a place in landscaping or beside highways. That's the decision from the North Carolina General Assembly.

In February, oyster shells were placed around the palm trees near the drawbridge at Wrightsville Beach. They were part of a Department of Transportation beautification project but since have been taken up and placed back where enviromentalists say they belong-- in the water.
