I clarified the above with one of my RPF friends:
Timber Harvest Plans have to be approved by an RPF.
The actual logging operation has to be carried out by a Licensed Timber
Operator. It doesn't HAVE to be supervised by the RPF, but in practice
most timber sales are.
Licensed Timber Operators have to take a special course, have 3,000 hours of
experience, and also post a 1-million dollar bond.
Timber operations are inspected by the state.
