Abstract

Concern over Federal land management decisions has grown in recent years. Public debates over activities on Federal land have been contentious, especially regarding management of national forests. Decisions on the management and use of national forest lands are based on many different considerations and values. Although Federal land managers can make choices concerning how to balance the various risks and tradeoffs involved, their decisions face questions from the public about whether the management direction and its associated effects, outcomes, and outputs are appropriate.
