Comments

An invited and reviewed law journal article published at the time Utah legislators were wrestling with how to address problems regarding forest practices on nonfederal lands within the state. The authors provide an assessment of the issue, outline Utah’s vulnerability to timber harvesting pressures, describe the consequences and risks associated with the situation, and analyze the primary stakeholder groups. They also summarize the deliberations, findings and recommendations of the Utah Forest Practices Task Force (Chaired by Dr. Joanna Endter-Wada) which was appointed to investigate the issue in 1996. The Utah Legislature subsequently funded a Utah State University Forestry Extension Program and passed a Utah Forest Practices Act (found in Utah Code, Title 65A, Chapter 8a and implemented through Utah Administrative Code, Rule R652-140).
