The Forest Service is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and was established in 1905. It specializes in managing public lands including forests and grasslands. The service oversees 155 national forests and 20 national grasslands across the United States. The first designated national forest, the Yellowstone Park Timber Land Reserve was established in Wyoming in 1891 by the General Land Office.
