Strategy RC2.8: Promote opportunities for non-conventional timber harvesting. Alternative timber methods include horse logging and selective harvesting.

Strategy Description

Non-timber income generators, as well as unconventional timber harvesting, can result in diversified income for landowners and creation of small forest-based business opportunities. A partnership with local universities could result in a demonstration farm, such as Appalachian State University’s Sustainable Development Teaching and Research Farm.
