Author: The Associated Press

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area is offering free cedar Christmas trees to those who want to cut them down.

Permits and guidelines can be obtained online or at the administrative office beginning Nov. 25.

A permit allows the cutting of one cedar tree less than 10 feet tall anywhere except within sight of the U.S. 68-Kentucky 80 highway, Woodlands Trace National Scenic Byway, cemeteries, nature watch areas, campgrounds and other mowed areas.

Forester Dennis Wilson said cutting down a cedar Christmas tree is not only a great family tradition, it also helps LBL maintain open lands and promote a diverse wildlife habitat.
