According to the LBL website, permits opened Friday and allow permit holders to cut down one free Cedar tree through Christmas Eve.

The permit is only good for cedar trees, and no trees should be cut along the Trace or Highway 68, according to the website.
The permit should be displayed in the windshield of the vehicle while looking for the tree.
