Welcome to the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service - Savannah River website. Through an Interagency Agreement with the United States Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site Operations Office, USFS-SR manages approximately 170,000 acres of onsite natural resources. This includes implementing the SRS Natural Resources Management Plan, which includes watershed protection and improvement, thus providing habitat for endangered animal and plant species while generating revenue from the sale of forest products.
USFS-SR, a unit within the Southern Region (Region 8) of the USDA Forest Service, shares the service’s mission to conserve the lands in partnership with the people we serve.
DOE-SRS is not open to the public, as it is a key DOE industrial complex that processes and stores nuclear materials in support of national defense and U.S. nuclear non-proliferation efforts.
