N5 - Planning for Healthy Forests and Timber Operations

States that do not have authorities to regulate forestry activities often use municipal zoning ordinances. If these ordinances are not written properly, they may inadvertently support incorrect forestry operations and techniques. Or, they are simply not complete and lack important provisions. This factsheet provides useful information that can be used to develop high-quality stewardship plans that can then be incorporated into comprehensive plans, zoning, and other land use regulations.
