“Fueled by the vast resources of land, timber, forage, water, minerals, and wildlife, development sprawled westward in the 1800s. Thanks to a few visionaries predicting the need for conservation of natural resources, the Yellowstone Timberland Reserve was created in 1891. The reserve designation, the first of its kind in the nation, provided a means of use and protection into the next two centuries.
The Forest Service mission historically emphasized commodity resource use and conservation. The expanded mission now includes maintaining wildlife habitat, and providing recreation opportunities. Today, Forest Service actions address the entire living system with all its interdependent parts, including humans. This management philosophy is achieved through partnerships with other federal, state, local, and private agencies.”
