I have a aquatic plant in a lake u fish that looks like a Christmas tree. It is green , in big clumps ( the size if a 50 gallon drum. I can't figure out what it's proper name is.

sounds like it is one of the milfoils.  (check Myriophyllum pinnatum) which grow in whirls with the lower leaves longer giving the appearance of a "Christmas Tree".
