SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The purpose for which the withdrawal was first made for the Panelli Seed Orchard requires this extension in order to continue protection of the unique and important forest genetic resources and the expenditure of Federal funds. The portion of the withdrawal extended by this order will expire on August 27, 2031, unless as a result of a review conducted prior to the expiration date pursuant to Section 204(f) of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976, 43 U.S.C. 1714(f), the Secretary determines that the withdrawal shall be further extended. The purpose for which the withdrawal for the Quartz Evaluation Plantation was first made no longer exists, so this portion of the withdrawal will expire at the end of its original term on August 27, 2011.
