Section 1537.71 Plan Review
Active Plans may be modified by the IDNR Forester and/or by agreement of the timber grower and the IDNR Forester to address new forest conditions, concerns or management strategies.
a) Plan reviews are required biennially. The IDNR Forester is responsible for monitoring the implementation of the Plan by the timber grower. Timber growers must submit a written statement biennially, upon request of the IDNR Forester, stating the present status of the forest and all progress in carrying out the current Plan prescriptions.
b) Plans are valid until cancelled by the IDNR Forester. Plans must be reviewed at the 10 year anniversary date. A new plan or modified plan must be submitted to the IDNR Forester for renewal of the certification.
c) Plans may be modified to adjust acreage or management activities, if approved by the IDNR Forester. Modified Plans remain valid for their original 10 years or, with newly collected forest inventory data and results, a new 10 year period can be established.
