People from many different organizations contributed to developing this field guide in 1998 and 2010. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Forest Products Utilization & Marketing Section, the Empire State Forest Products Association, the WAC Forestry Program, and the New York State Sustainable Forestry Initiative Committee were very instrumental in beginning the effort to have BMPs assembled into a practical field guide.

Many other local, state and federal agencies provided insight, inspiration and illustrations, which helped tremendously in developing this guide. A special thanks goes to the Hudson Mohawk RC&D Council, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, the US Forest Service, the NYC Department of Environmental Protection, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and the Northern Logger and Timber Processor.
