Land and Resource Management Projects

Projects are proposed actions that are analyzed through the NEPA process (EIS, EA, or CE) that involve analyzing different alternatives to the proposed action, requires public notice and comment, and result in a NEPA decision (ROD, DN, or DM) which is subject to an administrative appeals process, and ultimately is implemented on the ground.

Schedule of Proposed Environmental Actions (SOPA)

The current SOPA Report contains a list of proposed actions that will begin or are currently undergoing environmental analysis and documentation. Questions and comments regarding projects listed in the SOPA should be directed to the Project Contact shown in the SOPA.

Appeals, Objections, Litigation

Shasta-Trinity National Forest managers make many resource management decisions, which may be subject to appeal (request to a higher authority for administrative review of a decision)

Pre-decisional Objections

Proposed Shasta-Trinity decisions regarding projects documented in an EA or EIS are subject to a 'pre-decisional' review process. In these cases, the public may submit comments on the project for consideration prior to the final decision being signed.


Ecological Restoration Implementation Plan

In March 2011 the Pacific Southwest Region of the US Forest Service released a statement of its Leadership Intent for Ecological Restoration, which laid out the Region's guiding vision and goals for its stewardship of wildland and forests for the next 15-20 years. This plan reflects the Regional leadership's current thinking on how the Leadership Intent will be implemented.
