The Right to Practice Forestry: Laws Restricting Nuisance Suits and Municipal Ordinances
Forest landowners, like farmers, have been subjected to nuisance lawsuits and local ordinances regulating their activities. Two types of right-to-practice-forestry laws offer varying degrees of protection: those that provide a defense against nuisance lawsuits, and those that restrict the ability of local governments to regulate forestry activities. Such laws are becoming more prevalent, but once they are enacted, only legislators can redefine legal and illegal forestry activities. State lawmakers, not foresters, are thus determining the management options of forest landowners.
