What is the Forest Plan?

The revised Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan) guides the Prescott National Forest in fulfilling its stewardship responsibilities to best meet the needs of the American people, now and for future generations. It provides direction in the form of desired conditions, objectives, standards, guidelines, and suitability; incorporates the best available science; and provides a framework for adaptive management.

Forest Plan Monitoring 

A requirement in the Forest Service's 2012 Plan Rule prompted the Prescott National Forest to revise the monitoring chapter of its 2015 Land Management Plan to bring it into compliance. The new monitoring requirements, and the changes implemented to respond to them, are detailed in the Prescott NF Monitoring Transition Report.
