Each National Forest and Grassland is governed by a land management plan in accordance with the National Forest Management Act (NFMA). These plans set desired conditions, objectives, standards, and guidelines for the management, protection, and use of the forest. Monitoring conditions on the forest ensures projects are done in accordance with plan direction and determines if effects have triggered a need to update or change the plan direction.
