Real Christmas trees needed to help local fish habitats

WEST KENTUCKY — You can help local fish habitats and recycle your real Christmas tree.

Western Kentucky Fisheries says they are accepting donations of real Christmas trees for habitat projects in Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley.

The trees are bundled to create fish attractors that will be submerged in the lakes.

Trees donated must be real and free of lights, ornaments, tinsel, garland and any decorations.
