24). This contention is explored at great length and it is the argument that has been most pressed by environmentalists in Congressional battles over Forest Service appropriations.

Reform Options. Today, the Forest Service controls million acres of land, has a budget of more than $7 billion, and empl workers. 20 The Forest Service is in need of serious reforms. The services provided by the agency should be restructured to reduce taxpayer costs and to improve forest management practices.

The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Staff supports the Forest Service’s compliance with the environmental laws and regulations that guide management of the lands and resources of the National Forest System.

This site is designed to provide you access to helpful information related to the Agency's management of the NEPA process. After working for the Forest Service for 30 years, I finally had to write a book about it -- especially about some of the painful lessons I learned.

Here are just a few of them. Forest Service Directives. The Forest Service Directive System consists of the Forest Service Manual and Handbooks, which codify the agency's policy, practice, and procedure. The system serves as the primary basis for the internal management and control of all programs and the primary source of administrative direction to Forest Service employees.

Reforming the forest service User Review - Not Available - Book Verdict These three books share certain assumptions about forests: first, that forests provide essential benefits to biological life on land in the form of improved air, water, and genetic diversity; second. use issues, including public lands.

I’ve written a book titled Reforming the Forest Service and more than papers on national forest, BLM, and other federal and state land-management agencies. The recent standoff in my home state of Oregon is merely the latest controversy over how federal lands should be managed.

The story of the Forest Service is one of fascinating people, places, politics, laws, and controversies. The Forest Service was established by an act of Congress induring Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency, at the height of the Progressive founding of the Forest Service actually has its roots in the last quarter of the 19th century.

The Forest Service or other appropriate agency was responsible for actual work projects, technical planning and execution, and supervision of work forces. Some people thought the Army was taking on a larger role than had been originally intended and that this expansion of responsibility created problems between the Army and other Federal agencies.

Reforming the Forest Service had an entirely different view, holding that the Forest Service emphasized timber only because timber produced greater budgetary rewards than any other resource. If the agency could be redesigned to produce similar rewards from recreation, then it would emphasize recreation instead.

Forest Service, the federal agency with responsibility for managing the largest number of forested acres in the United States. In addition to maintaining the U.S. Forest Service Headquarters History Collection, FHS has also published numerous materials documenting the history. The Forest Service’s sense of purpose became muddled under laws meant to rein in the effects of maximum often single-focused timber production.

Not only was the public raising a stink, but there was much internal disagreement about what the Forest Service should be doing and how new laws had to be implemented, like it or not.By Steven E.
