In this photo taken on Dec. 2, Albert Carver looks at a 50-foot-tall Christmas tree made of lobster traps on Beals Island, Maine. Some of the top lobster-fishing ports in New England are claiming bragging rights about who has the biggest and best Christmas tree created from lobster traps. The groups that put up the trees say they draw attention to the ports' maritime heritage, bring people together and raise money for good causes. The tree in Beals Island helps raise money for the Beals-Jonesport Fourth of July festivities and one in Gloucester benefits a nonprofit devoted to the arts.
