Logging is a Land Disturbance

Logs outside

Logging is considered land disturbance. A land disturbance permit must be issued prior to clearing land for new development if clearing is greater than 1 acre (measured cumulatively). Logging for forestry must have an approved forest management plan including protection of riparian buffers. 

Call for inspection of tree protection fence and silt fence prior to clearing near any water features. 

Tree removal on homeowner lots is allowable outside of setbacks and buffers.
