Forest Plan Revision

The Colville National Forest has been working in coordination with the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest for a number of years to revise their land and resource management plans. This past year the planning teams opted to separate the planning efforts, with Colville Forest moving ahead as the next regional priority for completing its forest plan revision. The Forest is working to release a draft forest plan and draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) for public review.


Forest-wide Travel Analysis Report

The travel analysis process is intended to identify opportunities for the national forest transportation system to meet current and future management objectives, and to provide information that allows integration of ecological, social, and economic concerns into future decisions. The travel analysis process is tailored to local situations and landscape/site conditions as identified by forest staff members and coupled with past public input.
