Forest Service cares for the land and serves people. Promotes the sustainability of ecosystems by ensuring their health, diversity, and productivity, which is coupled with this service ethic: work collaboratively and use appropriate scientific information in caring for the land and serving people. Provides financial, technical and scientific assistance to outside organizations in order to achieve these goals when authorized by statute. These land and service ethics are applied by the Forest Service through ecosystem management. Ecosystem management is the integration of ecological, economic, and social factors in order to maintain and enhance the quality of the environment to meet current and future needs. The four strategic goals of the Forest Service are to: (1) protect ecosystems, (2) restore deteriorated ecosystems, (3) provide multiple benefits for people within the capabilities of ecosystems, and (4) ensure organizational effectiveness. The Forest Service Natural Resource Agenda identifies four key areas of national focus. They are: watershed, health and restoration; sustainable forest ecosystem management; forest roads management; and recreation enhancement. Implementation of the agenda will help bring people together and help them find ways to live within the limits of the land. This in turn will ensure that future generations will forever be endowed with the rich natural bounty of our Nation.
