03/04/2020 - *Public Meetings on Nebraska Trees and Forests
The Nebraska Forest Service is asking for public input on issues related to the state’s trees and forests during a series of public meetings March 2 – March 11, 2020. The meetings occur ahead of the submission of Nebraska’s Forest Action Plan—a federally mandated document that assesses the condition and trends of the state’s tree and forest resources.
The meetings will provide an overview of the Forest Action Plan, priority forest areas, and issues within the respective landscapes. Meeting attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback through the submission of written comments.
