Donate your holiday tree for salmon habitat
You can get rid of your holiday tree by donating it to Christmas for Coho, a program run by the Tualatin Valley chapter of Trout Unlimited that recycles Christmas trees into habitat for native fish.
Trees can be dropped off between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday and Jan. 18 at two locations: Northwest Fly Fishing Outfitters, 10910 NE Halsey St., Portland, and Royal Treatment Fly Fishing, 21570 Willamette Drive, West Linn.
A $10 fee covers the cost of transporting the trees out to the coast, where they will be placed in waterways to provide habitat and a food source for coho fry.
Because of water quality issues, Trout Unlimited cant accept trees with flocking or tinsel.Add a comment
