Re-Purposing Christmas Trees For Fish Habitat
If you had a real Christmas Tree and don’t want to just throw it out, the Missouri Department of Conservation has a way to put those trees to good use. Cliff Wilson from the Fisheries Department of the MDC says they will collect the trees beginning the first full week in January.
Wilson says land owners with ponds can also use their Christmas tree in their own pond.
If you have questions about donating your tree or how you can use it in your pond on to provide other cover, call the Chillicothe MDC office at 646-6122.
