Corps wants to recycle your Christmas tree for fish cover

HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. (USACE) -- Christmas trees don't have to go in the trash after Christmas.  In fact, all those trees in homes and businesses across the area can be put to good use.  After the holidays, complete your gift giving by donating your tree to the fish in Greers Ferry Lake.

The Corps will use donated trees to create fish habitat in the lake by placing fish shelters made of bundles of Christmas trees. To donate your tree, drop it off from Dec. 26 until Jan. 17 at Sandy Beach near the boat ramp in Heber Springs, Devils Fork Park's high-water boat ramp near Greers Ferry/Fairfield Bay, or Choctaw Park's boat ramp in the Clinton area.  Please do not block access to the ramps for those folks wanting to launch boats.
