Title: Invasive Species Management  
Abstract: The goal of the USDA Forest Service invasive species program is to reduce, minimize, or eliminate the potential for introduction, establishment, spread, and impact of invasive species across all landscapes and ownerships. The Department of Agriculture¬ís national invasive species program allows the Forest Service to take action against invasive species threats, yet no specific invasive species management policy has been developed to provide the broad guidance necessary for Agency activities addressing aquatic and terrestrial invasive species impacting the National Forest System lands or other areas of jurisdiction. The objective of this proposed action is to develop a Forest Service Manual chapter for invasive species management, and an accompanying Forest Service Handbook to provide a solid foundation on which to build a more effective invasive species program and meet the defined program goal. This policy will support both departmental and Agency-specific strategic plan goals and objectives for invasive species management.
