OK, so this is the Northeastern States’ Guide for Statewide Forest Resource Strategies http://www.northeasternforests.org/FRPC/files/1248201969NAASF_NA_Guide_State_Strategy_7_21_09.pdf
It is understandable, clear, well thought out, elegant, and thorough.
And I am going to officially adopt these guidelines. So to the Hawaii team, perhaps you might want to print this and pin it to the wall next to your computer. Right next to your calendar. While you’re at it, take a look at their Draft checklist for approval of State Assessments and Strategies I’ll buff this out over the weekend and have it ready to go for Hawaii by Monday morning.
Finally, some guidance. (Note the dates those documents were produced . . . ).
