Description/Notes: 

All forest product operators are required to become certified or re-certified under newly-revised Maryland Sediment and Erosion Control BMP Guidelines by July 1, 2017 in order to carry out any forest harvest operation in Maryland's forests.

This set of practices to protect water quality is the primary subject of the MD-DE Master Logger Program's Sustainable Forestry I training class.

Current Master Loggers will receive four (4) CEUs and prospective Master Loggers will receive credit for this class as part of their Core training toward their Master Logger certification.

Other forest product personnel, including firewood operators, are also required to carry 'Green Card' certification provided by attending this class and completing a short assessment test. Other forestry professionals, including licensed professional foresters, will also benefit from taking this course.
