The Kentucky Master Logger Program is an education program that teaches logging methods that benefit both industry and the forest.  The program was developed in 1992, but became mandatory with the passage of the  Kentucky Forest Conservation Act (KFCA) in July 2000, which regulates all commercial loggers and requires the use of best management practices (BMPs) to help protect water quality.
