U.S. Forest Service Planning
The Siuslaw National Forest & Six Other Western Oregon National Forests
The Forest Service began new plan revisions under President Obama first term in office. Unlike the BLM, which only owns forestland in Western Oregon, the Forest Service has over 120 national forests across most of the continental US. The region of national forest plans covers the entire US. The process begins with writing and adopting a guiding Planning Rule.
