Interim Forest Management Plans

oak savanna

Interim Forest Management Plans (IFMPs) are intended to guide timber management on properties that do not yet have formal master plans. The department expects to complete detailed master plans for these properties at some point in the future. Until then, the IFMPs will guide the management of forest resources for the identified properties. The plans are comprised of three parts:

  • a short narrative describing the property's habitats and notable features;
  • a listing of the proposed management objectives; and
  • a description of the techniques that the department proposes to use to achieve these objectives.

There are two draft Interim Forestry Management Plans available for public review from Feb 5 - Feb 19, 2019.

Comments may be submitted online or through Mail-in comment form below.

Property details can be found in the Open for comment tab below.
