Interim Forest Management Plans


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 the department proposes to use to achieve these objectives.

Plans Open For Comment

There is one draft Interim Forestry Management Plan available for public review. The public comment period runs until January 5, 2024.
