Four Outcome-Oriented Goals
Our strategic plan embodies our focus on the future, providing the American people with a vision of our direction for the next 5 years. Our plan contains four outcome-oriented goals for the Forest Service.
- Sustain Our Nation’s Forests and Grasslands.
- Deliver Benefits to the Public.
- Apply Knowledge Globally.
- Excel as a High-Performing Agency.
Although the plan covers only 5 years, we will strive to achieve these goals far beyond the planning period.
Each goal has several objectives. We expect to make progress toward reaching them during the next 5 years, and we will evaluate and report our performance each year.
