US Forest Service

The USDA Forest Service manages over 191 million acres of National Forest Lands on behalf of the American people, but also has a responsibility to support management on all forested lands across the United States. In particular, USDA Forest Service manages for water, timber, rangeland, fire, and recreation. Collaboration with many agencies and organizations like the American Public Gardens Association and its members is essential if there is any hope of effectively managing and sustaining our forests for future generations.
