Areas to Avoid: Some problem areas to avoid include:

• Active farmland
• Old home sites with wells or cisterns
• Construction problem areas that include very rocky or steep slopes
• Wetlands or swampy areas
• Areas of exotic invasive vegetation such as privet or multi flora rose thickets
• Stay at least 25’ from the edge of a stream to prevent impacting the resource
• Property boundaries – stay 100 feet away from adjacent landowners if possible
