National Forests cover from the ice fields of Alaska to the tropical rainforest of Puerto Rico, these 193 million acres belong to Americans, and their management and care have been entrusted to the United States Forest Service (USFS) and their Department of Agriculture (USDA). The Forest Service is a multi-faceted agency that cooperates with State and local governments, forest industries and other private landowners to manage and protect 154 national forests and 20 grasslands in 43 states and Puerto Rico.
The USFS supports American landscapes across 193 million acres of National Forests and Grasslands.
