IDL foresters protect our renewable timber resources by managing the land, harvesting the trees, planting new trees, and repeating. A large portion of the annual income for the endowment trusts is derived from the sale and harvest of timber. With undivided loyalty to endowment beneficiaries, we are committed to ensuring endowment forests remain strong, healthy, fire resilient and productive for generations to come.
IDL manages about one million acres of endowment timberland, which make up about 6% of forests in Idaho. However, IDL contributes approximately 23% of the timber harvested in the state. Standing inventory sampling is key to this effort. Over the years, inventory methods have included sampling additional plots, trees, and locations, on a more robust schedule around the state. We have also started to utilize remote sensing inventory methods to fill in any inventory gaps and look at change over time.
