Forest Plan Revision Documents—Sequoia and Sierra National Forests

Screenshot of covers for 3 forest plan documents.Land and resource management plans (Forest Plans) provide direction managing the lands and resources within a national forest. These plans are periodically updated with public involvement. Below are the documents associated with revising the land management plans for the Sequoia and Sierra National Forests.

The Sequoia and Sierra National Forests began revising their forest plans along with the Inyo National forest. Changed conditions from tree mortality on the Sequoia and Sierra forests warranted an update to their draft analysis, while the Inyo moved forward in the revision process without the Sequoia and Sierra forests and released a revised plan, final environmental impact statement and draft record of decision in August 2018. Please visit the Inyo National Forest’s Planning Page for more information on the Inyo’s final documents.

The Sequoia and Sierra National Forests released their revised draft environmental impact statement and held a public comment period in 2019. Public input from that comment period has been incorporated, and the Sierra and Sequoia National Forests have now proceeded to the next phase of the planning process, the objection phase. The final environmental impact statement, draft record of decision and revised forest plans for the Sequoia and Sierra National Forests were released on June 14, 2022, and are provided below, and the objection phase was initiated on June 15, 2022. For additional supporting information, and more information on how to participate in the objection process, please visit the Sequoia and Sierra National Forest Planning Page
