Each National Forest is governed by a management plan in accordance with the National Forest Management Act (NFMA). These plans set management, protection and use goals and guidelines. Monitoring conditions on a forest ensures projects follow plan direction and determines effects, which might require management change.

Planning involves reviewing project documents and monitoring conditions to ensure projects are done in accordance with plan direction and to determine any effects that might require a change in management.

You can find out about current forest planning efforts at the individual forest websites. Completed plans are also available for viewing. Select the forest you are interested in from the list below.
