This site contains information about the Forest Service’s pre-decisional objections. An opportunity for administrative review of unresolved public concerns over a proposed decision, termed an objection process, is available for land management plan amendments and revisions, and for projects and activities that implement land management plans and are documented with an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement . In such instances, individuals or organizations may file written objections after an environmental analysis document is completed and before a decision document has been signed. Those concerns raised in objections are then considered and responded to by a Forest Service official at the agency’s organizational level above that of the individual who made the proposal.
General Information: For general information about pre-decisional objections, please refer to the Related Information links.
Objection Responses: Recent and historical objection responses are available on this site and are organized by the Administrative Unit issuing the response. Opportunities for submitting objections to land management plan proposals are offered pursuant to 36 CFR 219 (219 rule) and for projects pursuant to 36 CFR 218 (218 rule).
Please use the map or drop-down lists to view the Forest Service’s objection responses issued from projects taking place in the Washington Office (at the national level), in region-level units, or in forest-level units.
