Forest and Grasslands Orders

A Forest and Grasslands Order is a document signed by either the Regional Forester or Forest/Grasslands Supervisor for the purpose of closing or restricting an area or National Forest/Grassland System road or trail. Forest and Grasslands Orders are issued when necessary to protect public health and safety and to provide the public with consistent restrictions.  The Forest and Grasslands Orders may cover the Northern Region, the Dakota Prairie Grasslands as a whole, or be specific to the Ranger District.
