In its resolution, the County Legislature calls the Adirondack Park “one of New York’s crown jewels,” on which thousands of people rely for work and recreation.
They said the new rules will allow logging companies to fulfill the demand for green-certified forest products, which will help the economy and introduce better management of forest lands.
“This allows a different type of permitting for clear cutting,” said Legislator Paul Maroun (R-Tupper Lake). “It’s very restrictive on how it will be done.
“It’s a good bill, and the agency should look at. It will help the land in the park.”
