Forest Management Plan

The Administration has taken major strides toward restoring economic and environmental stability in the Pacific Northwest after years of gridlock and conflict. After convening a Forest Conference last year, the Administration unveiled a biologically sound and legally defensible plan on April 14, 1994. The plan pledges $1.2 billion in economic aid for the Pacific Northwest region over five years. In addition, it provides a new set of watershed- based, scientifically-grounded prescriptions for managing the federal timber lands. Finally, it emphasizes the protection of old growth forests, restoration of streams and fisheries, and the protection of countless species of wildlife.
