2005 Draft JDSF Management Plan -- I have not found this
in my files. The 2005 EIR relates to this management plan and so is
important. I believe, in its basics, it doesn't differ greatly from the
2002 Draft MP. I will attempt to obtain this if no one has a copy.

pdf. The unzipped file has subfolders as it was distributed. It could
make sense to combine at least all of the files that constitute the body
of the EIR. You can do this with Adobe Acrobat.
to the Board of Forestry from the Mendocino Working Group, the
precursor to the Jackson Advisory Group JAG). I brought this group
together to begin a process that led to the formation of the JAG and
laid out guidelines for a resumption of timber harvesting on JDSF. The
work of the MWG led to the action by the BOF indicated in the following
Board of Forestry Motion (pdf) to establish Jackson Advisory Group,
to require JDSF to cooperate with the JAG in reaching decisions on stand
structures for future unspecified research (most of their harvests), and
that Alternative G be modified to reduce allowable harvests to 20-25
MMBF per year (as recommended by the MWG).
2007 Recirculated Draft EIR Alternative G pdf. This is an essential
complement to the 2005 Draft EIR. It was a result of the recommendations
of the Mendocino Working Group. This was converted from a Word document,
and unfortunately the column headings on the tables do not match up with
the columns, making what was difficult to follow even more difficult.
Mangement Plan pdf. The plan was issued in Draft form in 2007 and
the final version was issued in January of 2008. Note that this "plan"
is almost all boiler plate. There is almost no discussion of the
relation of the proposed timber harvest plans (p. 78) to supposed
management goals for the forest. The sections on silvicultural methods
and the short-term harvest schedule do show the dramatic impact that the
Campaign to Restore Jackson State Forest had on CDF management and
planning. Compare the 2005 Draft MP to the 2002 Draft MP.
2008 JDSF Option
A pdf. This document satisfies the state requirement that timberland
timber products. It
contains much of the text in the MP. Also, contains detailed 100 yr
projections of vegetation types, harvests, and inventories. This was
updated from the 2007 Draft MP to reflect recommendations of the MWG.
2007Final EIR for JDSF Management Plan
pdf. Actually published January 2008. This contains only responses to
comments made on the 2005 DFEIR and the 2007 Recirculated Draft EIR.
