Environmental lawyer Sanders says fill out KY Department of Forestry online forestry survey.

kentucky-forestThere were 25 million acres of forestland in Kentucky when those of European descent started spilling through the Cumberland Gap and drifting down the Ohio River.  In 1912, the Kentucky Legislature formed the Kentucky Division of Forestry. The initial emphasis for the division was to reduce the severity of wildfires in the state. Now the division’s expanded mission is to protect and enhance the forest resources of the commonwealth through a public informed of the environmental and economic importance of these resources.

 

Today, Kentucky has 11.9 million acres of forestland, of which 87 percent is privately owned.  Tell the state how important the forests are to you!!  Visit www.forestry.ky.gov to fill out a quick survey.
