It is also responsible for providing technical advice and support, and for conducting training to maintain technical expertise. In order to achieve this function, the Forest Service maintains a cadre of Pesticide Coordinators and specialists located at Regional Offices and at some Forest Supervisors Offices. Service policy and direction on pesticide use is outlined under the Forest Service Manual Chapter 2150.

We also provide technical pesticide information and coordination on the use of pesticides in the Northeastern Area.
