USDA Forest Service Directives

Forest Service Manual (FSM)

Field Issuances

Regional Foresters and Forest Supervisors may supplement Service-wide direction. Supplements may be more restrictive than parent material, but cannot expand the authorities or relax restrictions unless approved in writing by the next higher official. Research Station Directors, the Northeastern Area Director for State and Private Forestry, and the Director of the International Institute of Tropical Forestry also may supplement Service-wide direction. District Rangers and Research Project Leaders do not have authority to issue supplements.
