Christmas Tree Fish Habitat

This post might make you think twice about throwing your Christmas Trees away next year!

We recently placed 450 Christmas Trees to enhance dense protective fish habitat at Lake Windward in Alpharetta, GA. Using bottom and side sonar imaging, we were able to locate 25 bluegill spawning beds throughout the lake. We strategically placed the Christmas tree habitats around these spawning areas.  Amazingly, we found bluegill spawning beds in water depths as deep as 12 feet. These were perfect areas for the habitats. Though Christmas tree habitats will not last forever and can be labor intensive to sink, they still provide ideal dense habitat for protecting small forage fish such as bluegill.
