Best Management Practices

In Maine, Forestry Best Management Practices–or BMPs–are a combination of regulatory and voluntary measures designed to protect water quality on timber harvests. BMPs are based on a few basic principles, which when understood, allow loggers to select the most effective and efficient BMP practices for use on a particular timber harvest.

The Maine Forest Service has worked with its forest industry partners to a develop a Forestry BMP field manual and develop BMP training for loggers and other forestry professionals.
