Your Christmas tree can have a second chance at life as a fish habitat in your local lake. Instead of leaving your tree at the curb, the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission is asking people to do drop off their real Christmas trees at these locations until the end of January. Donations are being accepted at Beaver Lake, Lake Elmdale, Bob Kidd Lake & Crystal Lake Make sure to remove all of the decorations, ornaments, lights and tinsel. No artificial trees will be accepted.
