Liquidation harvesting, also known as “cut and run logging,” is the practice of buying a parcel of land, stripping it of valuable timber, then selling parcels off for development. Throughout the debate on forestry, all sides have agreed that the practice is wrong, but until now no measures were in place to stop it. A 2003 law required the Department of Conservation to draft rules, and a stakeholder process led to the proposals in LD #1962.
