Description: A method is described for developing and evaluating alternatives in land management planning. A structured set of 15 steps provides a framework for such an evaluation. when multiple objectives and uncertainty must be considered in the planning process. The method is consistent with other processes used in organizational evaluation, and allows for the interaction of decisionmakers, specialists, analysts. and the general public. The method incorporates several novel aspects that help in structuring the decision process. Application of the method is illustrated by replicating the development of an environmental study in the Truckee-Little Truckee Rivers Planning Unit, Tahoe National Forest, California.

Key Words: land management planning, evaluation of altematives, multiple objectives, uncertainty, structured format
