Donate Your Christmas Tree to Fish Habitat

If you’ve still got your Christmas tree at home consider donating it to fish habitat. Fisheries biologist Ben Batten says that studies have shown that fish utilize underwater structure for cover. “These trees are some of the best natural forms of underwater structure. Crappie, bass, bluegills and other fish will often use the trees to hide in and around,” Batten said. “More importantly, their limbs offer something to fish of all shapes and sizes,” he explained. The Christmas tree drop-off locations are listed here.
