Forest practices Civil Penalties

The Forest Practices Rules prescribe how to conduct forest practices such as logging, road building, and applying chemicals in ways that protect public resources. When operators or landowners do not follow the rules, the department issues enforcement orders and may also issue a civil (monetary) penalty.

A civil penalty is most often issued when the violation caused significant environmental damage, when an operator or landowner does not comply with the department's enforcement orders, or when the operator or landowner has a history of repeated violations. All civil penalties become final orders of the department unless appealed. Civil penalties may be appealed to the department supervisor and to the Pollution Control Hearing Board. If a penalty is upheld upon appeal, it becomes a final order of the department.
