U.S. Forest Service is asking the public for input before it rewrites the national forest planning rule.
The agency is holding nine regional “roundtables” across the nation, including Alaska. It’s the very beginning of a process to address restoring forests, protecting watersheds, and climate change, as well as sustaining local economies and improving collaboration among forest users. U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says it will result in a modern planning rule.
