§ 928.7. Cutting Practices.
(a) Prior to submission of the Plan to the Director, all timber proposed for harvest shall be clearly marked with paint at points approximately 4-1/2 feet above the ground and at ground level, except where the Director believes that a sample Marking of 20% of the area up to a maximum of five acres would be adequate for Plan evaluation.
(b) Where a sample Marking has been used, the balance of the timber to be cut, except for hardwoods, shall be marked under the direct supervision of the Forester (RPF) who prepared the Plan prior to the time of cutting.
(c) Up to 10% of the trees that are proposed for cutting may be substituted one for one with those proposed to be left uncut provided that the leave tree proportion, size class, distribution and general forest appearance of the residual stand as approved in the preliminary field work is preserved.
Justification for the substitution standard shall be based on unavoidable tree damage, safety factors, lean of trees, location of obstructions or roads or openings insufficient to accommodate felled trees.
