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.

Temporary Revocable Permit issued to NYCO Minerals Inc.

The Department has issued a Temporary Revocable Permit (TRP) to NYCO Minerals Inc. to conduct exploratory drilling for minerals on Lot 8 in the Jay Mountain Wilderness Area. The TRP, authorized by a Constitutional Amendment to Article 14, sets terms and conditions for mineral exploration activities and site mitigation and restoration. The permit authorizes the cutting of up to 1,254 trees.

The Jay Mountain Wilderness UMP was recently amended to: 1) recognize that a constitutional amendment implicitly repeals the Adirondack Park State Land Master Plan guidelines for Wilderness; 2) make the Unit Management Plan consistent with the Constitutional amendment; and 3) note that detailed terms and conditions governing mineral sampling operations will appear in the TRP.
