A Sikeston resident unloads a Christmas tree that will be recycled into a fish shelter in one of three lakes. Through Wednesday, local residents may take their real Christmas trees to the designated collection site on Airport Drive behind the Chamber of Commerce building. On Thursday, Sikeston Park Division employees will load a portion of the trees collected on to a trailer provided by Pullen Brothers Inc. for transport to the Corps of Engineers at Lake Wappapello. The remainder of the trees will be taken to the city's two lakes in the Recreation Complex and R.S. Matthews Park.
