Forest Plan Revision - How are we revising plans?

Forest Plan Revision.The National Forest Management Act of 1976 requires forest plans to be revised at least every 15 years. Congress waived the 15 year requirement as long as the Department demonstrates progress with revision. Of the 17 plans in Region 4, eight have been revised, and nine are original. The Intermountain Region currently has two forests working on plan revisions and five that will begin before 2021. Learn more about Forest Plan Revision and how you can get involved.
