Links to All National Forests and Many State Forests and Parks

There are 155 United States National Forests in 41 states. Each National Forest is under the supervision of USDA - Forest Service and composed of several ranger districts. The person in charge of a national forest is called the forest supervisor. The district rangers from the districts within a forest work for the forest supervisor. The headquarters of a national forest is called the supervisor's office. This level coordinates activities between districts, allocates the budget, and provides technical support to each district.
