NASF submits comments in response to the USDA Forest Service Notice of Intent for an Environmental Impact Statement on Old Growth forests

The National Association of State Foresters submitted comments in response to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) to amend all land management plans for units of the National Forest System to include consistent direction to conserve steward and recruit future old-growth forest conditions.

“Well-planned, science-based, and deliberate forest management activities, including commercial timber harvest, are necessary to limit threats to old growth forests. NASF is concerned that this national-level effort will limit the Forest Service’s ability to increase the pace and scale of active forest management to meet the wildfire crisis strategy and improve forest conditions.”
