Dealing with Local Timber Harvesting Ordinances: A Guide for the Forestry Community

Timber harvesting is regulated by only a small fraction of Pennsylvania's local governments, but as residential development increases, more municipalities may begin to regulate timber harvesting in order to maintain Pennsylvania's woods for future generations. This publication discusses the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code and recent forestry amendments; local government structure; zoning ordinances; types of land uses; applying for a permit; appealing the denial of a permit; developing a timber harvesting ordinance; unreasonable timber harvesting provisions; and how to work with local governments. A model timber harvesting ordinance is also provided.
