I love Christmas and everything about it, but live Christmas trees seem to be a thing of the past in most households. In years past, anglers would gather up Christmas trees after the holiday and sink them in reservoirs or ponds to create fish-attracting structure. The solution to this declining aquatic habitat structure is American Fish Tree, a product made from 100% PVC material shaped into a tree like configuration.
American Fish Tree owner Matt Marsden knows the issues facing pond owners and anglers wanting to put artificial structure in ponds, rivers or lakes. “People are always contacting me about the importance of artificial structure and how they can use American Fish Tree structures in their ponds or lakes. What I came up with at American Fish Tree is a long term, permanent solution that’s constructed from 100% PVC material that will never break down. This addressed the issue of using Christmas trees or other materials that will decompose after a period of time,” said Marsden.
