Cedar trees may be cut anywhere in Land Between The Lakes except:

  • Within sight of US68/KY80

  • Cemeteries
  • Nature Watch Areas
  • Campgrounds

Trees must be cedar, less than 10 feet tall, and stumps must be less than 4 inches tall. Chain saws may be used. Use of trucks, winches, tractors, or other heavy equipment is prohibited. Cutting rules and regulations can be found at www.LandBetweenTheLakes.us/quick-links/print/ under Fact Sheets and Information.

“Taking the family out into the woods to look for the perfect Christmas tree is a great holiday tradition. Check along roadsides or within old forest openings to find your tree,” suggested Forester, Dennis Wilson. “The cedar tree program also helps Land Between The Lakes maintain open lands and promote diverse wildlife habitat.”

Whether families cut or purchase a tree, they should follow these safety guidelines for choosing and using a cut tree in their home this Christmas.

  • Choose a fresh tree. If needles fall off easily, the tree is dry and can easily catch on fire.
  • When setting up your tree, cut the base off two inches above the original cut to help the tree absorb more water.
  • Place the tree in a stable, tip-proof container and water it daily.
  • Place the tree away from heat sources such as heating vents, wood stoves, or open flames.
  • Be sure decorative lights are UL approved and in good condition. Never leave tree lights on while asleep or away from home. LED lights are a great way to save energy.
  • Discard the tree when it begins to show signs of drying, such as brown or yellow coloration, or excessive needle dropping.

Cedar Christmas tree permits and regulations can be found at www.LandBetweenTheLakes.us/reservations/. Call 270.924.2065 for more information.
