The USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station is preparing a publication describing changes that have occurred in recent decades in the forests of the Black Hills. Publication reviews, including blind, peer, technical, editorial, and in this case public, are essential for research organizations to discover and develop knowledge that can be used to inform law, policy, and management. In addition to the normal technical and editorial reviews for publications, the USDA Forest Service is providing an opportunity for interested parties and the public to review and provide written comment on this draft research publication. To assist in timely completion of the report, we respectfully request you use the comment form found on this webpage. To submit comments, please send the completed comment form by April 15, 2020 to email@example.com.
Each written comment will be considered and reconciled in preparing the final publication, which is expected to be completed this summer. In this process, comments and suggestions may be taken fully, partially, or deemed not appropriate for this general technical report. The Peer Review Plan contains additional information about the review process.
The three relevant documents, 1) The Black Hills Timber Growth and Yield Draft General Technical Report, 2) Comment Form, and 3) Peer Review Plan, can be downloaded by clicking on the pictures or captions below.
