Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP)
In 1994 the Northwest Forest Plan (NWFP), also called President's Forest Plan, amended the planning documents of nineteen National Forests and seven Bureau of Land Management Districts. It includes extensive standards and guidelines, including land allocations, that comprise a comprehensive ecosystem management strategy.
After the Northwest Forest Plan was signed into law, the forest created the Land and Resources Management Amendment 11, which tried to merge direction from both the NWFP and the already existing Gifford Pinchot forest plan. This document served as a great starting point in the years following the NWFP.
Presently, forest staff are more likely to reference the source documents for planning purposes. Amendment 11 is provided for reference, but please understand that it contains some errors and omissions from the original documents and should not be solely relied on for land management allocations and direction.
