Guide Northeast Forest Management Projects

Forest Management Proposals and Silviculture Prescriptions are presented by the year in which they were proposed and then further by the Management Forestry District in which they are located. Proposals remain posted until the project is implemented with a timber sale or Home Fuelwood contract. Silviculture Prescriptions remain posted as long as a project is being actively implemented and at least one year after a project is completed. If you are unsure of when a project was proposed but know it’s location check the Management Forestry District map and it’s forester contact list.
