Some zoos around the world elect to give your old trees to their in-house elephants. Christmas trees help supplement their diet. The trees also supply them with nutrient-rich resin. What’s more, the elephants really seem to enjoy their seasonal snack.

Christmas trees act as an artificial habitat for fish in lakes. These discarded trees are collected by DNR (Division of Natural Resources) every year and are sunk into the lakes of West Virginia. They act as artificial reefs and help provide the fish with hiding places to ambush their prey. According to Scott Blake, a diving enthusiast from Tyler Mountain, these trees are extremely beneficial to fish breeding in lakes.
