Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness Invasive Plants EIS

Forest Supervisors of the Nez Perce, Clearwater, Lolo, and Bitterroot National Forests have selected Alternative 5 to manage noxious weeds and other potentially harmful invasive non-native plant species within the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness and key areas adjacent to the SBW Wilderness, encompassing 1,348,000 acres. The purpose of this project is to prevent the establishment of new invaders in the project area and reduce the impacts of established invasive plants on native plant community stability, sustainability and diversity within the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness.
