SYLVANIA, Ala.  (WHNT)– Once the gifts are unwrapped and Santa is back at the North Pole taking a long winter’s nap, the Christmas tree that was once the pride and joy of the home, will be tossed to the curb.

But the folks at the DeKalb County Lake are hoping you will drop off your old, live tree by their facility.  It will be put into the lake and made into a home for fish.

The park director says it must be a live tree, no artificial ones.   He says it can be dropped off at the park anytime, even if they aren’t open.   The tree can simply be left at the gate.

DeKalb County Lake is located at 720 County Road 194, in Sylvania.
