This site contains information about the Forest Service's Environmental Appeals. An appeal is a request to an agency higher authority for review of an environmental decision. The public's rights and responsibilities for filing an appeal are defined in specific appeal regulations. Usually, all administrative processes must be exhausted before a person can bring a court action (litigation) associated with an environmental decision.
General Information: For general information about the environmental appeals process, please refer to the Related Information links.
Appeal Decisions: Recent and historical appeal decisions are available on this site and are organized by the unit managing the project.
Please use the map or drop-down lists to view the Forest Service's appeal responses issued from projects taking place in the Washington Office (at the national level), in region-level units, or in forest-level units.
