Alachua County Forever Timber Harvesting Plan
A plan to harvest timber on Alachua County Forever properties was approved by County Commissioners today, with specific parameters.
Planted pine on the preserved properties has to be maintained for the health of the forest.
And the trees cut down to do that, can be sold for a profit. But as approved in the plan, the reason for harvesting has to be conservaton, and money made by selling timber will go right back to maintaining and improving the properties.
Commissioners also voted to include "salvage cut rules" in each property's individual management plan, in case of an emergency.
