Forest Service Manual 2900 - Invasive Species Management

The Forest Service has finalized the development of an internal directive to the Forest Service Manual (FSM) 2900 (Dec 5, 2011; PDF | 315 KB) policy for invasive species management. This final invasive species management directive will provide foundational comprehensive guidance for the management of invasive species on aquatic and terrestrial areas of the National Forest System (NFS). The purpose of this policy is to bring existing efforts together for a more coordinated management approach.

James M. Peña, Associate Deputy Chief, National Forest System approved amendment number 2900-2011-1 Nov 21, 2011. Effective date is Dec 5, 2011. This amendment is effective until superseded or removed.
