U.S. Forest Service:
The mission of the U.S.
Forest Service, part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is to sustain the
health, diversity and productivity of the nation's forests and grasslands to
meet the needs of present and future generations. The agency manages
193 million acres of public land, provides assistance to state and private
landowners, and maintains the largest forestry research organization in the
world. Public lands the Forest Service manages contribute more than $13 billion
to the economy each year through visitor spending alone. Those same lands
provide 20 percent of the nation's clean water supply, a value estimated at
$7.2 billion per year. The agency has either a direct or indirect role in
stewardship of about 80 percent of the 850 million forested acres within the
U.S., of which 100 million acres are urban forests where most Americans live.
