Our Mission

The mission of the USDA Forest Service 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 USDA Forest Service commitment to land stewardship and public service is the framework within which natural resources are managed. Implicit in this statement is the agency’s collaboration with partners and the public.

As the lead Federal agency in natural resource conservation, the USDA Forest Service provides leadership in the protection, management, and use of the Nation’s forest, rangeland, and aquatic ecosystems. Our ecosystem approach to management integrates ecological, economic, and social factors to maintain and enhance the quality of the environment to meet current and future needs. Through implementation of land and resource management plans, the agency ensures sustainable ecosystems by restoring and maintaining species diversity and ecological productivity that helps provide recreation, water, timber, minerals, fish, wildlife, wilderness, and aesthetic values for current and future generations of people.

Through technical and financial assistance, the USDA Forest Service assists States and private landowners in practicing good stewardship, promoting rural economic development, and improving the natural environment of cities and communities. The agency continues to develop and use the best available scientific information to facilitate achievement of our goals and objectives. Domestic and international activities are directed at developing values, products, and services in such a way as to maintain ecosystem health.
