The Forest Plan is an important document that governs all of our management action.

It is time for us to revise our existing plan. We invite you to work with us to develop a new plan that promotes a healthy, diverse, and productive Lincoln National Forest. Our goal is to remain inclusive and efficient as we move through the collaborative planning process.

The public will be invited to be involved throughout the process either through formal 'scoping' and 'comment' periods or simply in an informational awareness session to begin in the spring of 2015.  Be sure to check back here for more information.

The revision process involves three phases:

  • Phase I: Assess the condition of forest resources - determine the "Need for Change" (Year 1)
  • Phase II: Revise the plan through an Environmental Impact Statement (Years 2, 3 and 4)
  • Phase III: Monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the plan.

Public input and involvement will be ongoing throughout the process. For more on staying involved and informed, please visit our "Get Involved!" page
