Forest Preserve Temporary Revocable Permit Log

The Department of Environmental Conservation manages nearly 3 million acres of Forest Preserve Lands in New York State. Temporary Revocable Permits, typically referred to as TRPs, are issued by the Department to grant permission for the temporary use of these lands to individuals or organizations to carry out projects and activities which are appropriate to such land.

The TRP log below details approved activities currently taking place on Adirondack and Catskill Forest Preserve lands. Public comments regarding the approved activities are welcome and may be emailed to Preserve Log or mailed to Forest Preserve Stewardship Coordinator, NYS DEC, Lands & Forests, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4254. Please reference the TRP number in your correspondence.

Note: Once a public comment is received by the Department, it is a public record and is subject to disclosure.
