The following are recommendations to help minimize the impacts of forest harvesting practices on Randolph Mountain Club paths. The policy was adopted by the Randolph Mountain Club Board of Directors on November 22, 1998.
The forest products industry is an integral part of the economic, social and cultural life of the north country of New Hampshire. From time to time, landowners over whose land Randolph Mountain Club (RMC) paths cross, may wish to harvest timber. When they do, the RMC hopes that landowners will consider the historic, esthetic and recreational value of these paths.
The RMC believes that forest harvesting and the use of hiking trails can successfully coexist without undue hardship to either. It is with this in mind that the RMC adopts the following recommendations to help minimize the impacts of forest harvesting on RMC paths:
2. Buffer Zones:
3. Impacts of Harvesting
4. Debris and Slash:
5. Blazed Trees:
The RMC is fortunate and proud to have a long-standing, positive relationship with landowners. On behalf of the membership of the RMC, the Board of Directors extends its appreciation to landowners for the use of their land for RMC paths.
