What do you want from your national forest?

Written by 

out forestmanagementThe U.S. Forest Service is holding the next round of public meetings on the Forest Management Plan for Pisgah and Nantahala national forests.


The completed plan will guide forest management for the next two decades, including logging, recreational use, habitat management, ecological restoration, public access and much more.

The Forest Service published its original plan for Pisgah and Nantahala national forests in 1987, with a few updates in the intervening years. A multi-year process is now underway to revise it.

Each of the meetings will open with a presentation outlining the issues, management areas and plan development. During an open poster session, the planning team will share some proposed desired condition statements and information about watersheds and recreation settings.

All the meetings will run from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. and follow the same agenda. 

• Pisgah Ranger District, Oct. 21 at Forge Valley Event Center in Mills River, 8818 Boylston Hwy. 

• Nantahala Ranger District, Oct. 28 at First Presbyterian Church’s Tartan Hall in Franklin, 26 Church St.
