SPARKS, NV., March. 2, 2018 – The Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest released the Integrated Invasive Plant Treatment Project’s Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact statement (EIS) for a 45-day public comment period. The EIS would identify the strategies that the Forest would use to comply with laws, regulations, and policies pertaining to invasive plant management on National Forest System (NFS) lands in Nevada.

“Resources on the Forest are being negatively impacted by existing and expanding invasive plant infestations," said Forest Supervisor Bill Dunkelberger. "Invasive species often out-compete native plants, which can reduce productivity and biodiversity, causing habitat loss and economic impacts."

The purpose of this EIS is to update current management practices, helping the Forest to provide for integrated and timely treatment of invasive plant species by promoting healthy and thriving native plant communities across NFS lands in Nevada now and into the future. The goal of the project is to have a flexible integrated invasive plant treatment and restoration response to address the diverse species and site conditions encountered on NFS lands.
