Recycle Christmas TreesRecycle Christmas Trees For Fish Habitat

Don’t mulch Christmas trees or large limbs leftover from cutting firewood. Bundle them to make valuable habitat for bluegill and other baitfish.

As newly hatched fry leave spawning beds, their first instinct is to find dense cover to escape predation. Bundles should be six feet by six feet by six feet. Attach an anchor and sink in depths from three to five feet. Calculate summer evaporation to make sure they’ll be covered at the pond’s lowest summer level. Mark each spot and fish them to improve angling success.

If you don’t cut firewood or use artificial Christmas trees, contact us about artificial fish attractor options. Any combination is productive and greatly benefits future generations of baitfish.
