Once the plan is complete in September 2021, how many years will it last?
The plan will last generally a generation.
We're getting closer to the end, folks! Post any questions here. Get as specific as you like.
This has been a great overview. Thanks.
have the number of acres of agreement between the various interests gotten smaller or larger over the years this process has been going on?
Thank you for bringing up not overshooting habitat for species such as GWW. Need more permanent old growth
Would that be Tier 2 over 20 years or 50 years?
Were climate change scenarios incorporated in the planning process--for example, in determining likely outcomes for specific habitat types like spruce-fir forest?
Hey all, thanks for listening. Last chance to post questions here.
Curtis is projecting 48% open canopy on NF lands under Tier 2 goals. I am curious about the time span being looked at. It appears that Tier 2 is probably beyond the optimum level of management over a 50 year horizon in some ecozones (Cove, notably) based on Analysis in the DEIS, but is not beyond the optimum over a 20 year horizon.
Thank you to Sheryl, Alice, and Curtis for this informative presentation; and thanks to Nancy, Kim, and Ben for hosting!
Thanks for being here, Mary, and for all you do to help private landowners with their forests!
