Forest Orders

Regional Foresters and Forest Supervisors may issue orders that will close or restrict the use of certain areas if the need arises.  Such orders will be posted so that visitors to the National Forest can reasonably be expected to be familiar with them.  Copies of the orders will be available in the offices of Forest Supervisors and District Rangers.  Listed below you will find links to Forest Orders that are relevant to the Lake Tahoe Basin.
