  • After the holidays, instead of throwing out your live Christmas tree, consider recycling it as a fish habitat.

    The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife has several drop-off points across the state where you can bring your tree. Fish and Wildlife will take your tree and combine it with others to create fish attractors for lakes all over the state.  These brush reefs provide nesting and rearing habitat for gamefish as well as creating homes for invertebrates and smaller fishes that provide food for larger fish.
