The Forest Service uses Land Management Planning to set direction for managing the National Forests and their natural resources. Generally, these plans can be thought of as a zoning document that identifies where and under what conditions an activity or project could occur.
As part of carrying out the mission of the Forest Service, agency resource specialists develop proposals that will enhance or maintain resource values on public lands, as well as generate products. In addition, the public may submit proposals for various uses such as rights-of-way, land exchanges, and recreational events. A necessary part of the planning for these is the environmental analysis and documentation, pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and agency direction.
