CO: Recycle Christmas trees into wildlife habitat

PUEBLO, Colo. – Colorado Parks and Wildlife is setting up a
Christmas tree drop off point in the Pueblo area to recycle
Christmas trees into quail habitat. The trees will be used to
create artificial brush piles to improve the small game habitat on
local state wildlife areas.

Collection dates are Jan. 2 through 15 at the Colorado Parks and
Wildlife Pueblo Service Center archery range parking lot located at
600 Reservoir Road.

Wildlife officials ask that people remove all ornaments and tinsel
prior to bringing the trees to the collection site.

Directions to the collection site: From the intersection of
Thatcher Blvd. (Highway 96) and Pueblo Boulevard, go west on
Highway 96 for approximately 2.75 miles to Reservoir Road; turn
right and travel 0.10 miles to the archery range parking lot and
place the trees in the area marked by signs.
