A collaborative approach to forest restoration projects is an effective method to engage a broad range of stakeholder interests in a National Forest. Completing the project design and the environmental review, however, does not guarantee successful implementation. Natural disturbance, particularly wildfire in our region, can cause an Interdisciplinary Team to return to square one. Legal challenges to a Forest Service Decision (Record of Decision or Finding of No Significant Impact) occasionally suspend work and nullify the decision. The report below lists projects for which the Forest Service Decision was encumbered, in spite of the commitment to collaborative group engagement.
