RISE Eastern Standard Documentary on NPR

The 8th episode of RISE, the Eastern Standard documentary series, focuses on a proposed US Forest Service logging project in the Jellicos, part of the Cumberland Mountains in the Daniel Boone National Forest on the Kentucky-Tennessee border. As proposed, the project would clear cut stands of old-growth trees on 10,000 acres over 40 years. Presenting voices of support and opposition, this episode highlights the issues prior to a U.S. Forest Service public comment period in late summer.
