Clear Cutting on Highway 441

Morgan County Planning Director Chuck Jarrell stated last week that the clearcutting taking place on the east side of Highway 441 at Morgan County’s border with Oconee County is a timbering operation on 70 acres owned by Log Creek, LLP, from Athens. According to Jarrell, Georgia Pacific Timber Company has pulled a timber permit to clear the 70 acres on behalf of Log Creek, LLP. Jarrell stated that the county is “monitoring the site” and that the operation is in compliance with the best management practices of forestry and agriculture. PHOTO: J. WALKER
