The role of the USDA Forest Service, Northeastern Area and State forestry agencies in sustainable forest management is defined as follows:
- Use the seven internationally recognized criteria of sustainability to organize and communicate information on forest resource conditions and uses.
- Support inventory, monitoring, and assessment to provide a comprehensive picture of forest conditions, management, and resource uses.
- Coordinate conservation, management, and protection programs and partnerships.
- Provide education and communication opportunities for professionals and the public.
USDA Forest Service, Northeastern Area State and Private Forestry programs contribute to sustainability.
