Input sought for forest work

June 27, 2007

ANNAPOLIS - The Maryland Department of Natural Resources Forest Service will seek comments online over the next 30 days on the proposed annual work plans for Green Ridge, Pocomoke, Potomac-Garrett and Savage River state forests.

The public can review and comment on the proposed plans through July 24, according to a DNR press release.

The proposed annual work plans identify the detailed forest management goals for the 2008 fiscal year. Specifically, the plans describe silvicultural operations, maintenance and construction projects, and other work to be performed in each forest, according to the press release.

The online forum is the third step in a three-step review process. During the first step, a team of resource professionals from the fields of wildlife, fisheries, heritage, forestry, recreation, water resources and resource planning conducted an internal review. During the second step, an appointed advisory committee reviewed the proposed plans, according to the release.

After this final 30-day comment period, forest managers and staff will review the comments and make adjustments to the plan where appropriate.
