Group Ethic
  • Limited wilderness expansion
  • Consideration of Citizens Proposal
  • Maximum 2/8 of proposed designation areas
  • Tionesta scenic area
  • Economics of region
  • Disease control
  • Necessity of permanent designation

3
Target Designation Areas
  • Areas with motor vehicle stipulations
  • Limited to no industry
  • Distant proximity from current spread of disease
  • Little economic impact in region
  • Tionesta Scenic Area
  • Cornplanter
  • Chestnut Ridge

4
Regarding Permanence
  • Insect and disease control
  • Economic well-being of proposed region
  • Experimentation and research possibilities
  • Hickory Creek
  • Lacks species diversity
  • Requires management

5
Insect control
  • Non-Designation allows for management and
    possible prevention of spread and infestation
  • Gypsy moth infestation in PA (bottom left)
  • Beech bark disease widespread
  • Beech scale
  • Wooly Adelgid (right)

  • No industry (timber and oil production)
  • 2018 acres
  • Researchers wrote 300 articles based on research
    about or within wilderness areas (in the ANF).

    at 5 million nationwide annually.
