Why do we have Forest Plans?
Forest plans are required by the National Forest Management Act of 1976 (NFMA). Forest plans provide the forest with framework and direction to achieve integrated, long term desired conditions. It also provides a way for the public, other agencies, other governments and Tribes to understand what and why we make the decisions we do.
Kaibab National Forest Plan
The Kaibab National Forest Plan sets out desired conditions, long-term goals and other large-scale guidance used in developing projects. Projects are planned and implemented to move from existing resource conditions to desired conditions.
On February 3, 2014, the Kaibab National Forest revised its forest plan, which can be found at the Final Forest Plan and DEIS webpage.

Because our partners and publics have valuable ideas, knowledge, opinions, and needs that can inform and improve management, the Kaibab Plan Revision team provided a variety of collaborative opportunities. The Kaibab also engaged its partners to use the best available science in the plan development and evaluation of alternatives.
