Christmas trees burned by vandals at Tiber Reservoir[04.13.2016]

GREAT FALLS -
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is looking for information about 500 recycled Christmas trees that were burned March 27-28 in two incidents at the Tiber Reservoir.
Tiber Reservoir is located in Liberty County about 15 miles south of Chester.
Grant Grisak of FWP said in a press release that the trees were set aside for spawning habitat for perch, and were due to be put in the reservoir in mid-April.
The vandalism happened on the north shore of Tiber, on the Willow Creek arm south of Lothair, and on the reservoir’s south side, off of Bootlegger Road.
The Pines For Perch project is a cooperative effort of the Great Falls chapter of Walleyes Unlimited, Tiber Hydro LLC and FWP, Grisak said.
Every year, Walleyes Unlimited puts dumpsters around Great Falls to collect used Christmas trees, which are taken to Tiber.
Volunteers and FWP put the trees in shallow water to provide spawning habitat for perch.
“Perch are an important forage component to the Tiber walleye fishery” Grisak said. “Our studies have shown the perch use many of the trees for spawning.”
Anyone with information is asked to call MT FWP at 1-800-TIPMONT.
Informants are kept confidential and rewards up to $1,000 are possible
