WANTED: Used Christmas Trees
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri Department of Conservation says Christmas trees whose holiday purpose has expired can be donated as homes for fish. The department uses the natural trees to establish fish habitat in lakes. Officials say man-made lakes do not have much fish habitat, and the trees provide woody cover. The trees attract invertebrates that are a good food source for small fish, which attract larger fish. Young fish also can hide among the trees.
