"Logging Plan for Daniel Boone National Forest Is Withdrawn"

"LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Officials have canceled a proposal for commercial logging in the Daniel Boone National Forest in Rockcastle County that had caused concern about the potential impact on a pristine spring and trees hundreds of years old."

"An official with the U.S. Forest Service confirmed the decision to the Herald-Leader and Kentucky Heartwood, a forest education and advocacy group which was against the plan.

Opponents of the logging plan had proposed horse and hiking trails as an alternative in one area."
