Abstract : This environmental assessment provides an analysis of the environmental and socioeconomic effects of implementing a proposed revision of the 1994 'Management Guidelines for Red-cockaded Woodpeckers (RCW) on Army Installations.' This assessment is completed in compliance with requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1973, as amended. Two alternatives were considered in detail: (1) continue implementing the 1994 Army RCW guidelines, and (2) implement the proposed revision to the 1994 guidelines. Implementing the proposed revision is the preferred alternative. This assessment determines that implementing the proposed revision would have no significant cumulative adverse effects on biological, physical, social, or economic resources on Army installations where these guidelines would be implemented.
