Officials Seek Comments on Missouri Forest Guidelines
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri's Conservation Department is seeking public input on voluntary guidelines for managing forests.
The agency is developing the policies to help private land owners manage forest resources, and is aiming for guidelines that are understandable and practical. The proposal includes guidance on enhancing soil and water quality, wildlife habitat and forest health.
The guidelines are entirely voluntary.
Conservation officials are accepting public comments through Nov. 15.
