APA offering sustainable forestry program

RAY BROOK - The Adironack Park Agency is offering an outreach program to assist landowners, businesses and forestry professionals in their efforts to meet sustainable forest management requirements.

While forest management activities are not generally regulated by the Adirondack Park Agency, certain forestry uses may trigger Park Agency jurisdiction. To assist forestry professionals and landowners identify applicable laws in their certification efforts, agency staff developed an educational program titled "Promoting Systematic Forest Management Environmental Compliance."

This program reviews applicable Agency laws and regulations for jurisdictional activities such as: clear cutting, shoreline restrictions, wetlands and Forestry Uses on lands classified as Resource Management. It covers the Adirondack Park Agency Act, NYS Wild, Scenic and Recreational Rivers Act and the NYS Freshwater Wetlands Act.

To schedule a program presentation, please contact the Adirondack Park Agency at 891-4050.
