Abstract : The locations of three sites in Hunting Area 1, Fort Knox, Kentucky, were examined intensively to determine their perimeters prior to a tree planting project by the Forestry Division. During subsurface testing it was seen that the entire area had been disturbed and compacted by tank training in the past. Dated aerial photographs revealed the use of this area for heavy tank traffic over a period of decades.
