Northwest Forest Plan
The mission of the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP) is to adopt coordinated management direction for the lands administered by the USDA Forest Service and the USDI Bureau of Land Management and to adopt complimentary approaches by other Federal agencies within the range of the northern spotted owl. The management of these public lands must meet dual needs: the need for forest habitat and the need for forest products.

The Forest Service developed and released a Bioregional Assessment which provides a snapshot in time of the current ecological, social and economic conditions on national forest system lands.
