Christmas Tree Drop-Off at Lake of the Woods

The Lake of the Woods Forest Preserve will accept Christmas Trees for recycling December 26 through January 15.

Some of the trees are chipped for mulch, but others place in the lake to be used as artificial habitat for aquatic species, especially fish. The trees provide protection, food and shade for young fish. In contrast, they also provide great ambush points for predatory fish such as the Large Mouth Bass. The structures are hotspots for breeding and spawning.

Trees can be dropped off inside the maintenance entrance on IL-RT 47, just north of Mahomet. For more information call 217-586-3360 or visiting
