Assessment Phase

The Black Hills National Forest has initiated the Land Management Plan revision process, pursuant to the 2012 Planning Rule (36 CFR 219) and as directed by the National Forest Management Act of 1976. The first phase of revision involves the drafting of several resource assessments. The assessment phase of forest planning calls for a rapid evaluation of existing information about relevant ecological, economic, and social conditions, trends, and sustainability. Analyzing this information will provide insight into the relationship between the current land management plan and the context of the broader landscape. These assessments represent several different resource areas, and  will lay the ground work and transition information and knowledge into plan development (phase 2) and then the monitoring (phase 3) of the process.

The Draft Assessments include:
