The National Forests in Mississippi has elected to use the provisions of the 1982 planning rule, including the requirement to prepare an EIS, to complete its plan revision. Revision of the Forest Plan is a multi-step, multi-year process that will result in re-analysis of the present plan, identification of changes in management direction, description of our vision for the future, and determination of appropriate strategies and design criteria. The revised Forest Plan will supersede the land and resource management plan previously approved by the Southern Region Regional Forester on September 16, 1985 and as amended seventeen times since original plan approval; however this amended Forest Plan will remain in effect until the revised plan takes effect.
The National Forests in Mississippi Forest Plan covers the six proclaimed National Forests in Mississippi: Bienville, DeSoto, Delta, Holly Springs, Homochitto and Tombigbee.
