Deadhead logging plans

Posted June 17, 2005

Bainbridge- The Department of Natural Resources is developing regulations for a new "Deadhead logging" program on the Flint River.

     "Deadheading" is the harvesting of submerged logs. Sunken logs are considered extremely valuable because of their unique timber. It's used in a variety of ways, including wood flooring and paneling. The logs in the Flint fell off lumber rafts as far back as the 1800's.

     The DNR will hold a meeting about its "Deadheading" regulations next Wednesday between 5:00 and 8:00 PM at Bainbridge High School. Follow up meetings will be held the following Monday.
