​​Storm Damage Assistance

The Kentucky Division of Forestry (KDF) is committed to supporting the emergency response efforts due to the recent devastation from severe weather that occurred within our state.  We will continue to partner with Kentucky Emergency Management and other partners in this effort.

KDF also realizes that as a result of the recent severe weather, many landowners have sustain significant damage to their forests.  Landowners that have sustained damage to their forests as a result of storms should contact a natural resource professional to assess the damage and develop a plan to restore their forests.  The KDF foresters can assess damage and develop a stewardship plan to help manage short and long-term forest health.  Contact the office​ that serves the county where your property is located.
