We're the part of the U.S. Forest Service that helps family landowners and communities keep trees and woodlands in their lives. Part of our work concerns forest health on National Forests and other Federal land, but the heart of our mission benefits the people living amidst, and owning, the urban and rural forests that make up 90 percent of America's eastern landscape.
Our work involves sharing technical expertise and providing grant funding that makes an impact at the local level. Forests, water, and people matter to us and our primary partners, the State forestry agencies. We support their capacity and the programs they offer to meet local needs.
