Local Regulation of Timber Harvesting and Trucking in Georgia
Abstract:By early 1992, 49 Georgia counties regulated timber harvesting or trucking activities in their jurisdictions by either a formal ordinance or an informal working policy. As recently as 1988, only 14 counties were known to have such ordinances. All new regulation since 1988 occurred in rural counties. The most common form of regulation requires that a logging permit be obtained or that county officials be notified of an intent to harvest timber. The posting of a surety bond is also a common requirement. Current local regulations in Georgia are summarized in an easily updated field guide, Field Handbook of Local Logging and Log Trucking Regulations in Georgia, that is now available. Regular revisions of the handbook are planned to keep foresters and logging contractors up to date on local regulations in the future. South. J. Appl. For. 17(4):200-206.
