Rangeland Management

Who We Are

Rangelands in the United States are diverse lands. They are the wet grasslands of Florida to the desert shrub ecosystems of Wyoming. They include the high mountain meadows of Utah to the desert floor of California. The United States has about 770 million acres of rangelands. Private individuals own more than half of the Nation's rangelands. The federal government manages 43 percent of the rangelands. State and local governments manage the remainder. The USDA Forest Service administers approximately 191 million acres of National Forest Systems lands. About half of this acreage, 96 million acres, is rangelands.

The Rangeland Management Office is part of the Forest Service's National Forest System Deputy Chief area. The Rangeland Management staff provides national direction and support for the agency regarding rangelands products, rangeland ecology, and rangeland vegetation.
