 Connecting Forestry to People...

The State and Private Forestry (S&PF) organization of the USDA Forest Service reaches across the boundaries of National Forests to States, Tribes, communities and non-industrial private landowners. S&PF is the federal leader in providing technical and financial assistance to landowners and resource managers to help sustain the Nation’s forests and protect communities and the environment from wildland fires.

State and Private Forestry programs bring forest management assistance and expertise to a diversity of landowners, including small woodlot, tribal, state, and federal, through cost-effective, non-regulatory partnerships. The staffs play a key role, along with others within the Forest Service and the Department of the Interior, in implementing the National Fire Plan to manage the impacts of wildland fires on communities and the environment.

FIRE and AVIATION MANAGEMENT protects 191 million acres of National Forest System Lands and an additional 20 million acres of State and private lands. We provide premier leadership in wildland fire management, operations, research, and advanced aviation technologies. More fire information.

The NORTHEASTERN AREA mission is "To benefit people by helping manage their trees and forested landscapes through expert advice, innovative technology, and financial assistance."

OFFICE OF TRIBAL RELATIONS is charged with fully implementing Forest Service tribal relations policies and continuing to build long-term, collaborative working partnerships with Indian Tribes.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT coordinates the Forest Service's leadership responsibilities for sustainable forest and resource management through extensive multi-stakeholder collaboration and integrated actions with Federal and external partners.
