Chattahoochee National Forest

GAINESVILLE - Two Northeast Georgia men were recently ordered to pay fines and restitution for ignoring property lines and building structures on Chattahoochee National Forest land.
 
Joshua T. Pritchett, 28, of Ellijay was ordered to pay a fine of $100 along with $2,700 in restitution costs for constructing a wall on National Forest land within the Rich Mountain Wilderness and removing trees during construction of the wall.
 
Pritchett pled guilty before U.S. Magistrate Walter E. Johnson for "removing a natural feature" from the Chattahoochee National Forest.
