Environmental Lawyer Sanders says Daniel Boone National Forest is only national forest completely in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Did you know that the Daniel Boone National Forest is located along the Cumberland Plateau in the Appalachian foothills of eastern Kentucky?  The Daniel Boone National Forest is the only national forest completely within the boundary of Kentucky. Established in 1937, it was originally named the Cumberland National Forest, after the core region called the Cumberland Purchase Unit.

 

The hardwood Map of the Daniel Boone National Forestforest encompasses over 707,000 acres of mostly rugged terrain. The land is characterized by steep forested ridges dissected by narrow ravines and over 3,400 miles of sandstone cliffs.  These lands are federally managed to provide the nation with a sustained yield of natural resources, including wood, water, forage and wildlife.
