Lake Shelbyville Looking For Christmas Left-Over Trees

Those in the community still hanging onto their real Christmas trees have the opportunity to donate those to provide habitat in Lake Shelbyville. The two locations for tree drop-off are Howys Lakeside Gas Station in Sullivan and the Johnstowne Mall in Shelbyville.

Shelbyville Park ranger Brock Key says that these mostly dead Christmas trees provide habitat for fish. The trees will be bundled in groups and sent into the depths of the lake for some new fish real estate.


Lake Shelbyville releases and adds water to the reservoir during all months of the year. Park Ranger Key takes us through the numbers of importance during season changes.


For information about Christmas tree drop off or more about Lake Shelbyville, contact the visitors center at 217-774-3951.

Brock Key appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show, live from our downtown studios in Shelbyville.
