SYNTHESIS

The Southeast Mountain Province has strong

potential to use native materials such as

boulders, fieldstone, and rough-hewn logs.

These materials can be skillfully replicated or

suggested with modern manufactured materials.

Durability is a primary concern because of the

high visitation to forest lands. Care must

be taken to provide access to water without

disturbing riparian areas and to orchestrate

and preserve the long vistas of this province.
