95.38 acres of the 117.924 acres are conserved-USDA Healthy Forest Reserve Program: no motorized vehicles, no new roads, timber harvest per restoration plan. Conservation Easement deed on file in my office. From USDA website: Restoring and protecting forests contribute to the economy, provides biodiversity of plants and animal populations, and improves environmental quality. In Kentucky, HFRP will focus on habitat protection for the endangered Indiana Bat, and also threatened, endangered and candidate aquatic species. These species are expected to benefit as a result of improved forest habitat conditions, implementation of forestry best management practices, and improved water quality through better management of riparian areas.
