Land & Resources Management

Each national forest and national grassland is governed by a land and resource management plan in accordance with the National Forest Management Act (NFMA). These plans outline management direction, including desired future conditions, suitable uses, monitoring requirements, goals and objectives, and standards and guidelines. Monitoring of conditions on a national forest or national grassland ensures projects are done in accordance with plan direction and determines effects that might require a change in management direction.
