Description: The U.S. Forest Service is the largest agency within the Department of Agriculture. With more than 30,000 employees, it is composed of three primary operational branches: the National Forest System, State and Private Forestry, and Forest Service Research and Development. The National Forest System, by far the largest of the three, is responsible for protecting and managing the 19 1 million acres that comprise the 155 national forests and twenty national grasslands of the United Stares. State and Private Forestry provides technical and financial assistance to state, private, and tribal forestland owners. Forest Service Research, the largest forest research organization in the world, is comprised of six stations as well as the Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin. Most stations consist of an administrative headquarters, various research work units distributed among the states that comprise the station, and experimental forests where station scientists conduct much of their research. Many research work units are located on university campuses to facilitate collaborative research and share equipment and facilities.
