Best management practices are voluntary guidelines that help foresters, loggers and others who work in the woods protect soil and water quality. They include things like cleaning up fuel spills, minimizing ruts left by heavy equipment, and installing properly sized culverts and bridges that allow fish passage.
We strongly encourage anyone involved in growing, managing or harvesting trees to follow these guidelines.
