Forest Plan Revision

Forest Plan RevisionThe Forest Service Planning Rule (2012) is the Federal regulation that sets the procedures and required content for forest plans. The 2012 Planning Rule is the first major update to Forest Service planning procedures in 30 years, reflecting decades of experience and lessons learned. An ecosystems focus is a key change emerging from 30 years of advancement in science and forest planning. Ensuring public participation in the development (and not just the review) of plans, and recognizing the key role of the public and partners in forest management under revised forest plans is another important change.
