Using BMP's before and during operations will minimize the cost of closing.
Your operations will be judged by what you leave behind. Roads should be stabilized when the job ends for the season, as well as when the logging is completed. As a rule of thumb, if a logging area is to be inactive for 30 days or more, forest roads and skid trails should be temporarily shut down. The main purpose of closing forest roads is to prevent erosion. A properly closed forest road will improve aesthetics while providing access for recreation, wildlife and forest management, fire control and other activities. Each section of the forest road should be closed when it is no longer needed.
