Abstract
  • Management of national forests evokes controversy about the allocation of limited resources among competing uses. A Land and Resource Management Plan (Forest Plan) has been prepared for the Payette National Forest. The Forest Plan describes resource management practices and the levels of resource production at which the Forest would be managed. Monitoring whether plans are implemented as designed and whether environmental effects are as predicted has been described as a weak link in environmental analysis. Monitoring will assist in furthering the understanding of the effects of producing multiple resources in the national forests. Major laws that are applicable to monitoring the Payette Forest Plan include the National Environmental Policy Act, the National Forest Management Act, the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act and the National Historic Preservation Act. The Fayette National Forest - Forestwide Action Monitoring Plan has been prepared to provide guidance to resource managers on incorporating monitoring into projects. The results of monitoring will be used to assess whether the Forest Plan is implemented as designed and if the environmental effects are occurring as predicted. Actions that could be recommended include: no action, referring the problem to the appropriate individual for improvement of management practices, modifying the management practices as a Forest Plan amendment, revising the cost per unit output or initiating revision of the Forest Plan.
