Abstract:
Land Management Allocations on National Forest lands within the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. This theme includes the Management Areas (MAs) from the MBSNF Land and Management Plan (LMP) and the management allocations from the "Northwest Forest Plan". Both sets of land allocations were merged, and a preliminary prioritization was made to determine where the most restrictive standards and guidelines and desired future condition apply. The resulting merged allocations are the Merged Land Allocation. Prioritization information follows.
Purpose:
To provide the forest with a merged set of allocations to aid in forest planning.

Source_Contribution:
For the MBS Forest Plan, the Management Area boundaries were drawn by the District Management Teams using 1:62,500 scale base maps. The 12 base maps were photographic composites predominantly of USGS 15-minute series quad maps at a source scale of 1:62,500 scale and with a few 7.5-minute series quad maps photographically reproduced from 1:24,000 to 1:62,500 scale.
Process_Step:
Process_Description:
1:62,500 scale Management Allocation layers were developed in 1980 and updated in 1987. The update for the Preferred Alternative for the Land Management Plan Environmental Impact Statement was finalized in 1989 by the Ranger Districts.

Entity_and_Attribute_Overview:
Preliminary Hierarchy of NWFP Land Allocations from the Initial Merger [continued from the Lineage section] and Codes used in GIS for the NWFP Allocations

Land Allocations in the ROD NWFP GIS Code Initial Merger Approach

Congressionally Reserved Areas CW Wilderness: no change.

Late Successional Reserves LSR Details below...

Adaptive Management Areas AMA All MAs within AMA are mapped jointly. Where acres allocated to both AMA and LSR, plus MBSNF LMP MAs, all are mapped.

Administratively Withdrawn Areas AW These non-harvest MAs [including scenic and recreation areas] outside of LSR, AMA, and riparian reserves retain the MBSNF LMP allocation.

Riparian Reserves [not mapped/ This allocation essentially replaces MBSNF MA 13. coded on this theme]

Matrix AVAIL As allocated in the MBSNF LMP, with Riparian Reserves overlapping. The term "matrix" is not used. At this time, MA 12 [pileated woodpecker and pine marten: late successional species] is retained until these sites are assessed as per ROD C-3.

PRIVATE Private lands within the National Forest boundary.

LSOG Late successional old growth areas outside of LSRs.

Merging MAs and LSR: The key standard and guideline used to determine whether existing plans were more restrictive was timber harvest. If the MBSNF LMP management area allowed no scheduled [programmed] timer harvest, its S&Gs are "more restrictive" than LSR [which allow thinning in stands under 80 years of age]. MBSNF LMP MAs with no timber harvest inside LSR were mapped jointly, e.g., 1B/LSR. Where LSR is more restrictive, the MAs are mapped only as LSR ["overriding" the MBSNF LMP allocation].

Where Late-Successional Old Growth [LSOG1 and LSOG2] is mapped outside of LSR, it is mapped as per LSR [jointly with any more restrictive MBSNF LMP allocations, etc.].

While road construction and recreation/development emphasis were considered, no attempt was made, at this time, to assess the full S&G and determine if an MA was more or less restrictive overall than LSR. A full "merger" of standards and guidelines is still needed.

Where these MAs overlap LSR, mapped as LSR: 1D Roaded Natural recreation [rec. emphasis and allowed timber harvest] 2A Scenic foreground [allowed partial yield timber harvest] 2B Scenic middleground [allowed partial yield timber harvest 11 Spotted owl habitat area, species protection provided by LSR 12 Mature and Old-growth species, species protection provided by LSR 14 Deer and elk winter range [allowed partial yield timber harvest] 17 Timber emphasis 20, 21, 22, 23 Municipal watershed [allow higher yield timber harvest] 27 GF General Forest, Alpine Lakes Management Area 27 SF Scenic Forest, Alpine Lakes Management Area

Where these MAs overlap LSR, mapped jointly: No timber harvest allowed in MBS LMP: 1A/LSR no thinning, no road construction, blend of S&G 1B/LSR no thinning, no road construction, blend of S&G 1C/LSR no thinning; motorized rec. may need restricting to meet LSR S&G 5C/LSR recommended Wild River, no harvest, blend S&G 15A/LSR mountain goat winter range, no thinning, no new roads 18/LSR RNA, no harvest, limit recreation, blend other S&G 19/LSR mountain hemlock zone, no harvest, blend other S&G 27 DR/LSR Alpine Lakes Management Area, dispersed recreation 27 SA/LSR Alpine Lakes Management Area, special area

Where these MAs overlap LSR, mapped jointly: Some timber harvest allowed, but need to retain some characteristic of the MBS LMP allocation: 5A/LSR Recommended Recreation River, W&SR system 5B/LSR Recommended Scenic River, W&SR system 6/LSR portions Portions of Skagit Wild and Scenic River [Congressinally Withdrawn]
