Land Between the Lakes (LBL) is about 45 minutes from Clarksville (depending on which area you are visiting). This national recreation area is an estimated 170,000 acres that falls between the Kentucky and Tennessee border.
LBL has issued a statement that they will allow people to cut down 1 cedar tree, so long as it is less than 10 feet tall. The trees can be cut down in any area EXCEPT near US 68-Kentucky 80, Woodlands Trace, cemeteries, nature watch areas, campgrounds and mowed areas. Why would LBL be interested in allowing people to cut these trees down? Well, not only is it a great family tradition, but it allows LBL to maintain open land and helps to promote diverse habitats for the wildlife.
If this is something that you or someone you know may be interested in, you will need a permit to do so. This permit will allow the cutting of one cedar tree with the above specifications. The permit and guidelines will be available online starting November 25 and will be available until December 24 (Click Here). You may also visit the administrative office from November 25 until December 23.
