Description

From the Introduction...'The Longleaf Islands Unit Plan is a comprehensive management program for a 19,300 acre/area on the Ocala National Forest. The unit is a part of 189,000 acre/area currently managed by the Lake George Ranger District. The plan will be the basis for all management actions within the unit. All programs, activities and services will recognize and work within the boundary of the unit. As a total plan, it will tell what, where, how and when things will be done. The unit plan represents the final stage of a multi-level planning task which included: coordinating the broad policy and direction set forth in The System for Managing the National Forests in the East with the specific management objectives and policies of the Longleaf Islands Unit in The Ocala Plan.... The management direction for the Longleaf Islands Unit is to maintain the islands in a pleasant and natural condition and to provide open park-like space for dispersed recreation. In addition, develop and maintain habitat that will support a readily harvestable population of quail.'
