Standing Timber in Barkley Reservoir

Two hundred and ten trees were topped and left standing as markers to locate channels and slough areas in four sections of Barkley Reservoir in Tennessee. These trees will extend above the surface of the water when the lake is at normal pool elevation and are spaced so that fishermen will be able to readily locate these creeks and sloughs which are thought to be the most desirable fishing areas. The creeks and sloughs which were marked and the number of trees left standing on each are as follows: Shelby Creek, 16; Bear Creek,120; Barrett Creek, 49; and Big Slough, 25. The total cost of this project was $2,224.00, and the average cost per tree was $10.59.
