Joe Kreuger and his staff at the Flathead National Forest have got their work cut out for them. The proposed Forest Plan triggered a lot of feedback . . .
The Flathead National Forest received over 19,000 public comment submissions for its proposed revision of the forest plan, according to the agency.
Forest officials are still sorting through reams of emails and letters following the May 15 deadline for public comment.
Joe Krueger, project leader and forest planner for the Flathead National Forest, said his team continues to count the number of submissions that were filed and some that were postmarked by last Friday may still be arriving.
