Louisiana residents who had real Christmas trees to celebrate the holidays are being asked to now help the state’s fisheries.

Jefferson Parish is seeking volunteers to help with its annual Christmas tree recycling program.

It’s the parish’s 30th year doing the project.

In 2019, more than 6,000 Christmas trees were collected in Orleans Parish and airlifted by the Louisiana National Guard into the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge.

Similar programs are occurring in St. Tammany, St. Bernard, St. Charles, Tangipahoa and Plaquemines parishes.
