Forest Soil Productivity
The goal of these guidelines is to maintain the productive capacity of forest soils in Minnesota. A decrease in soil productivity could affect the level of timber harvesting the forest can sustain, as well as other forest values, such as wildlife habitat and biodiversity. Identifying and reducing impacts to this resource should be an essential part of any strategy to achieve sustainable forest management.

Programmatic Agreement Info
To comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act, the Tonto National Forest developed a Programmatic Agreement (PA) and included it in Volume 5, Appendix O of the final EIS. The PA was created in cooperation with the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the State Historic Preservation Office, tribes and other consulting parties.
