Timber Harvests

Timber harvesting involves cutting and removing trees for sale that may be done as part of the initial clearing and grubbing process for future development or independent of any future activity on the site.  Timber harvesting projects that disturb 25 acres or more, including the sum of all haul roads, skid trails, landing areas, etc. are required to obtain an Erosion and Sediment Control Permit (ESCP) prior to beginning the harvest.
