The Forest Service, U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture, is
dedicated to the principle of
multiple use management
of the Nation's forest re-
sources for sustained yields
of wood, water, forage, wild-
life, and recreation. Through
forestry research, coopera-

management of the National

lands, it strives-as directed
by Congress-to provide in-
creasingly greater service
to a growing Nation.
