Teaming up to reduce the threat of catastrophic wildfire

As you venture out this summer, you may see increased logging in your area. That’s because state, federal and private landowners are teaming up to reduce the threat of catastrophic wildfire. Using cutting edge technology, overgrown forests and dead and diseased trees will be harvested, while protecting air and water quality, wildlife habitat and the places we love. When our forests are healthy, Idaho is healthy.

Highlighted Projects

Have you received a post card or other outreach? Find the project and learn how we can help you.

Scattered Lands Hazardous Fuels

The project will mitigate wildfire threats to communities by focusing on hazardous fuels mitigation, improving overall forest health, safeguarding road access to communities, and increasing public outreach and education.

Tamarack Forest Demonstration Site

Tamarack is working with state, county, local and federal agencies on projects that stretch forest improvements across jurisdictions and property lines. See how forestry can help protect homes while providing beautiful recreation.

Highway 95 Corridor Project

This work will address hazardous fuel conditions on 92,355 acres of private, state, and federal land. This will increase forest health and resiliency, enhance wildlife habitat, and create fire-adapted communities.

No Boundaries Forestry

The group effort known as Shared Stewardship is taking place in many states. In Idaho, these efforts fall under our No Boundaries Forestry collective efforts. Idaho is addressing more than 6 million acres of Idaho forestlands that are designated as high-risk for potential catastrophic wildfire and insect and disease outbreaks. We need the support and participation of federal, state, industrial and family forest landowners to reach our goals.

The Idaho Department of Lands, the USDA Forest Service and the Natural Resources Conservation Service are sharing staff, funding, and are joining with a governor-appointed advisory group to identify mutual priorities and cross-boundary forest management opportunities.

The Idaho Forest Action Plan serves as a path forward for identifying and addressing forest threats across the state—and Idaho Shared Stewardship Initiatives will include the all-lands strategies, GNA projects, and cross-boundary initiatives to mitigate these threats across forested lands in Idaho.
