US Army Corps of Engineers Pushing Tree Recycling Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers looking for live Christmas trees for the annual Christmas Tree Recycling Project.


Doug Wasmuth is a Natural Resource Specialists with the Army Corp of Engineers. He says Christmas trees provide effective and economical fish habitats.



These fish shelters provide breeding areas, resting places, and protection. They give young fish much-needed living spaces where they can feed on plankton and avoid being preyed upon by larger fish. The protection provided by the trees allows for a large number of fish to grow to maturity and ultimately provide more fish for anglers.
