Federal Lands Expert Witnesses analyze and negotiate issues concerning lands owned or administered by the federal government. Federal lands are owned by the federal government, pursuant to Article Four, section 3, clause 2 of the U.S. Constitution, which empowers Congress to retain, regulate, and sell federal lands. Of the billions of acres in the country, roughly 28% is owned by the federal government.
Numerous issues arise concerning federal lands such as limiting cattle grazing, and the administration of national parks, national wildlife refuges, military reservations, federal prisons, and land in the public domain. Federal lands are owned or administered by the federal government, which includes the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, the Department of Defense, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, the Tennessee Valley Authority, and other agencies.
