Cast Shadows Only Near Player?

Hello everyone,

I have a general noobish question; is it possible to make objects only cast shadows within a radius near the player? I have a big grassland with dynamic lighting and would love to have the foliage near the player cast beautiful shadows, but have all the grass farther than around 2000 away from the player cast no shadows, similar to LODs but with shadows instead of polygons. Can’t seem to find an answer anywhere

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
