Plan Revision: Home Page

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 along with other avenues to be determined.  Be sure to check back here for more information.

The revision process involves two 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)



Where are we in the process?
