Mitigation Idea: Support research into effectiveness of forestry BMPs
Here is a possible mitigation option suggested by technical experts for the Appalachian Critical Biodiversity Area:
Support research into the effectiveness of forestry BMPs (best management practices) related to steep slope logging techniques; followed by efforts to adapt the BMPs if/as indicated by the results.
Participate in the discussion forum to share ideas and provide feedback about practical actions that companies can take to promote positive impacts on forest management, and reduce the risk of procuring wood from forests where important ecological values are threatened.
The forum is organized by each Regional Meeting with each Specified Risk Topic listed under each meeting:
Asheville (Appalachian Region)
Atlanta (Southeast/Mississippi Alluvial Valley Regions)
Portland (Pacific Coast/Rocky Mountain Regions)
Please post your comments and mitigation ideas under the correct topic. Example: To suggest a mitigation idea for Houston Toad, go into "Atlanta Meeting", find "Houston Toad" and add your comment within that section.
Please keep all comments as succinct as possible, and be respectful of others and their ideas. Moderators will remove any inappropriate content.
