Sequoia and Sierra National Forests Land Management Plans Revision #3375

Commenting on This Project

The 90-day public comment period for the release of the revised draft environmental impact statement and revised draft plans for the Sequoia and Sierra National Forests began on June 28, 2019.

We are revising these plans because they are over 20 years old. Economic, social and ecological conditions have changed since they were written, new laws, regulations and policies are in place; and new information based on monitoring and scientific research is now available. Together, the Sequoia and Sierra National Forests manage nearly 2.4 million acres of national forest system lands located at the southernmost extent of the Sierra Nevada range of California.

The Sequoia and Sierra National Forests began revising their forest plans along with the Inyo National forest in 2013 and released an initial draft environmental impact statement and draft plans in 2016. Changed conditions from tree mortality on the Sequoia and Sierra forests at the same time of the original draft release warranted an update to the draft analysis supporting their revised forest plans. The Inyo National Forest did not experience the same changed conditions, moved forward in the revision process without the Sequoia and Sierra forests and released a revised plan, final environmental impact statement and draft record of decision in August 2018.

This 90-day public comment period supports the release of the updated analysis for Sequoia and Sierra National Forests.

Your comments are requested by 9/26/2019.
