Christmas Trees Needed In Clay County

Christmas trees needed for fish habitat

CLAY COUNTY, Missouri: Fresh cut Christmas trees can maintain their usefulness after the holidays are over. Clay County Parks, Recreation and Historic Sites needs fresh cut Christmas trees to create crappie fish beds in Smithville Lake. A drop off site at the Little Platte Park Shelter 1, on Smithville Lake's west side, opens December 26. Anyone with a fresh cut Christmas tree can take it to this location for environmentally friendly disposal.

"We collect fresh cut Christmas trees for placement in the lake later this spring," said Mike Kaullen, Deputy Director of Parks. "Maintaining fish habitat in the lake makes for a healthier fish population. Christmas trees provide ideal cover for crappie."

Trees brought to Smithville Lake for recycling should be free of all decorations, including lights, tinsel and icicles. Only whole trees are accepted. Hours for the drop off site are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through January 31. For more information, contact the Park Office at 816-407-3400.
