Forest Management Plan

A forest plan provides the framework to guide the ongoing land and resource management operations of a National Forest. Additional guidance is summarized in Appendices. The goal of the Plan is to provide a management program reflecting a mix of activities for the use and protection of the Forest. It fulfills legislative requirements while addressing local, regional, and national issues.

Schedule of Proposed Actions

As part of carrying out the mission of the Forest Service, agency resource specialists develop proposals that will enhance or maintain resource values on public lands, as well as generate products. In addition, the public may submit proposals for various uses such as rights-of-way, land exchanges, and recreational events. A necessary part of the planning for these is the environmental analysis and documentation, pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act and agency direction.

Road Analysis Process

The National Forest system Road Management Rule (Road Policy), issued in 2001, shifted emphasis from developing forest roads to improving their management. The rule was developed in response to public demand and the need to better utilize funds available for road management.
