Tree cutting and clearing along a busy road in a mountain community has sparked the curiosity of residents.

"I was wondering why all the trees are being cut down along Enka Lake Road in Candler?" Kalee Ellison wrote to Ask 13.

Crews appear to be cutting into the woods and clearing a path just past Vista Lake Drive and before the elementary school.

The work is being done on property that surrounds Enka Lake or what's now known as Biltmore Lake.

The county permits and inspections office confirmed the tree cutting is to make way for roads that are part of an expansion of the Biltmore Lake community.

Biltmore Farms is moving into the final phases of development in the community, and officials said the work will add 19 home sites.
