Trees may be harvested within the RMZ. Achieving BMP compliance in these areas generally requires greater care, reduced physical intrusion (e.g., skid trails, roads, equipment) into the riparian management zone, and often reduced levels of harvest (e.g., thinning, uneven-aged management) or no harvest at by:   Forest Management in Riparian Areas In New Hampshire, the Basal Area Law allows no more than 50% of the basal area of trees to be cut within 50 feet of a stream.
