Participate In Forest Plans


April 5, 2018

The U.S. Forest Service will soon release the first draft of its plans for the Pisgah and Nantahala national forests. These plans will guide forest activites, from wildlife management and timber sales to all forms of recreational activities, such as hiking, biking, fishing, etc., for the next 15 years.

National forests play a huge role in this county. The two forests, as well as the Blue Ridge Parkway, comprise 89,359 acres, or 37 percent of the county’s land area. Clearly, what happens with more than one-third of this county’s acreage has direct and indirect impacts on all of us.
