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?
Jamie Harrelson
08:24:32
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.
