American forests filter 50 percent of the nation’s water supply and absorb 12 percent of
U.S. carbon emissions. Forest Service lands have generated $14.5 billion – money that goes back to local communities – and these lands provide a home to important plant and animal species.
Disease infestations and invasive pests are killing tens of thousands of acres of trees
nationally. Increased development is splitting forests into fragments, and a history of suppressing natural fires has created unhealthy forests. Climate change is also altering the size and growth patterns of forests.
