There are 145 United States National Forests in 41 states. Each one is under the supervision of the U.S. Forest Service, which falls under the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is composed of several ranger districts. The person in charge of a national forest is called the forest supervisor. The district rangers from the districts within a forest work for the forest supervisor. The headquarters of a national forest is called the supervisor's office. This level coordinates activities between districts, allocates the budget and provides technical support to each district.
