About the Event
Beginning Monday, Dec. 26, there will be a designated Christmas Tree Recycling area in the parking lot of Pike Road Founders Station (4902 Pike Rd) near the intersection of Pike & Meriwether Roads for residents to drop off their UNDECORATED, LIVE trees. Trees can be dropped off for future use in animal habitats! If you have a use for a live, undecorated tree, you are welcome to pick one up.
Since 1993, Alabama Power has re-purposed and re-cycled over 60,000 Christmas Trees to build fish habitat for its Fish Habitat Enhancement program on Alabama Power Company managed reservoirs. In addition to using trees, artificial structures have been utilized as well. All habitat locations are marked with GPS and provided to the public, which can be viewed here.
