MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — The Vermont Attorney General's office says two logging companies will pay a total of $150,000 in fines for improper timber harvesting.

The office says Adrien Inkel and Son Inc., and Stephane Inkel, Inc. failed to follow current use forest management plan on their 2,113-acre parcel in Bloomfield.

Under the court-approved settlement, the companies will pay the state for four violations of its "Heavy Cut" law. The law was enacted in 1997 and requires landowners to follow sound forest management practices when heavy cutting 40 acres or more.
