How do I know which forestry activities do not require a Forest Practices Application / Notification?
There are some forest practices activities that do not require a FPA/N. However, Forest Practices Rules must still be followed so that public resources are protected. Some examples of activities that don’t require a FPA/N include:
- Tree planting
- Installing seedling protection devices
- Seeding grasses and forage
- Hand slashing competing vegetation
- Cutting less than 5,000 board feet per year (approximately one log truck load) of timber for personal use (i.e., not for sale) when no resource issues exist.
