Sequoia National Forest

The Giant Sequoia National Monument Record of Decision (ROD), Management Plan (Monument Plan), and Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS)

President Clinton visits the giant sequoia where he signed the Proclamation

On September 4, 2012, Forest Supervisor Kevin B. Elliott released a new Giant Sequoia National Monument Management Plan (Monument Plan). The Monument Plan guides restoration efforts for giant sequoia ecosystems, watersheds, habitat for old-forest dependent wildlife, and the protection of mountain communities.

Regional Forester, Randy Moore, selected Alternative B and one element of Alternative E (Moses Wilderness recommendation) as the basis for the Monument Plan. Release of these final documents culminates years of collaborative efforts with multiple agencies, the scientific community, and an engaged public to develop management direction based on public collaboration and current science.

Map Description

The maps available here were created using Geographic Information System (GIS) layers and are available in large format. Eleven large maps are included exactly as they were printed and mailed in the map packet for the DEIS. The maps included in the map packet for the Draft Management Plan contain the same information as these, so they are not repeated on this website.

These large maps are in color and are designed to be printed on a large format plotter. They are in PDF format and are viewable and printable with Adobe Acrobat Reader. The latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader should be used to view these maps. It is available at the website link below. If you are having problems viewing the maps, be sure to install the latest version of the Acrobat Reader. Adobe Acrobat Reader is free and may be downloaded from:
