List of U.S. National Forests


List of U.S. National Forests

This is a list of all the National Forests in the United States. If looking at national forests on a map, be aware that, in general, those west of the Great Plains show the true extent of their area, while those east of the Great Plains generally only show purchase districts, within which usually only a minority of the land has been made national forest. As of September 30, 2007 there were 192,764,673 acres (301,194.8 sq mi, or 780,090.96 km²) of land managed by the United States Forest Service, an agency of the United States Department of Agriculture. The vast majority of the acreage is designated as either National Forests (97.2%) or National Grasslands (2.0%). There a few other minor categories, mostly "purchase units" and facilities related to research efforts. There is also one designated National Preserve (Valles Caldera National Preserve in New Mexico).

There is at least one National Forest in all but ten States: {Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Jersey, Rhode Island}, and in addition, there is a National Forest in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Also, in quite a few of these ten, there are either National Grasslands or substantial State Forests (e.g. New Jersey). Also, Hawaii, lacking either one of these, has two National Parks. Several states have both a National Park and a National Grassland; and a few states have a National Park, a National Grassland, and a National Park - e.g. California, Texas, and Colorado. Also, Massachusetts, lacking any of these three, has the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Everything is listed twice; first by state, then alphabetically. For a more detailed breakdown by unit name, type designation, state, county, and congressional district, please refer to the official Forest Service report in the linked reference below.
