Forest Plan Database Exchange of Current Knowledge

The Forest Plan Database Exchange of Current Knowledge (FP_DECK) is a searchable database of Forest Service land and resource management plans. This allows anyone to conduct a search an individual forest plans or across multiple forest plans based on a topic of interest, such as a management action, a protected resource, or a geographic location.

FP_DECK allows land managers to examine similar forest-based activities, explore specific forest characteristics and issues, and develop consistent templates that incorporate state, regional, and national knowledge and expertise. Land management planners can efficiently evaluate the consistency of proposed actions and guide land managers through in-depth plan building.

FP_DECK is a collaborative effort among the Forest Service's Western and Eastern Environmental Threat Centers, the National Forest System, and state, regional, and national partners.
