About two-thirds of America’s forests are in non-federal ownership (State and private lands). U.S. Forest Service is the Federal leader in sustaining the health and productivity of the Nation’s 749 million acres of forest lands. These acres include forests and trees in urban areas, forested State, private, tribal lands, and lands managed by other Federal agencies. Through cost-effective, non-regulatory programs and partnerships, individual forest landowners, Tribes, communities, and cities are provided tools to pursue diverse forest stewardship objectives. Outreach programs to educators, government agencies, underserved communities, and private organizations promote environmental literacy, increase public awareness of the multiple benefits of forests, and help build a consistency of future land stewards.
