Projects

The Land and Resource Management Plan for the Daniel Boone National Forest (Forest Plan) guides the coordination of multiple uses of the Forest while promoting sustained yields of services and products. Such uses include outdoor recreation, clean waters, fish and wildlife, timber and minerals. Forest Plan goals and objectives provide sideboards for new projects and are designed to move the Forest towards the desired future conditions described in the Forest Plan. These project proposals are subject to resource analysis in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. For more information, the Citizens Guide to the NEPA provides information on how to get involved in the planning process.

A Schedule of Proposed Actions published on the first of January, April, July, and October to keep you informed about Forest projects. If you have a comment or a question about the planning process, feel free to send a note to the Forest’s Environmental Coordinator at comments-southern-daniel-boone@fs.fed.us.

Open Lands Management on the Cumberland District of the Daniel Boone National Forest

The purpose of this project is to outline an adaptive management strategy related to the management of early successional habitat, such as grasslands, shrub-lands/shrub thickets, young forest, wildlife openings, cane breaks, seeps,and wetlands.

Pine Creek Forest Restoration Project

This project area covers a total of 113,300 acres, with about 45,700 on NFS lands. The project will restore forest health and structure through vegetation management, improve wildlife habitat, and provide forest products for the local economy.

South Red Bird Wildlife Habitat Enhancement Project

This is a wildlife habitat enhancement and forest restoration project that will incorporate vegetation management (including harvests, thinnings, and reforestation), prescribed fires, habitat improvement, trail re-routes, and road maintenance.

Wildlife Opening Maintenance Plan EA

Project will analyze various methods of maintaining wildlife openings on the London District. Methods may include mowing, plowing & planting, masticating, and/or prescribed burning. Currently, mowing is inadequate for proper management.

On Hold

Hughes Fork Culvert Replacement for Aquatic Organism Passage

Replace a degraded and failing culvert at Hughes Fork Crossing with a stream simulation crossing to allow passage of aquatic organisms (AOP), including fish, frogs, and amphibians.

Little Double Culvert Replacement

Replace an existing culvert on Little Double Creek with a culvert that would allow fish, frogs, and amphibians better passage. The target benefitting species is the threatened Kentucky Arrow Darter found in this creek.
