What is No Boundaries Forestry/Shared Stewardship?

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.

News for Landowners and a survey opportunity


The Highway 95 Corridor Project is planned to 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.

Look for an upcoming forest treatment demonstration site in the Circle C subdivision.

Possible funding sources for private landowners to participate in the cross-boundaries forest health improvements include National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) EQIP program and Idaho Department of Lands Grant Funding.

EQIP grants help private landowners address forest health through cost-sharing with reimbursements between 50% and 75%.

The Highway 95 Corridor Project is a collaborative effort between the Payette National Forest, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Emmett/Weiser Districts, the IDL Payette Lakes Supervisory Area, and the BLM Cottonwood Field Area.


State, federal and county representatives toured the Highway 95 Cooridor Project in July 2021 to discuss challenges, solutions, and why landowner participation is so important to the success of forest health improvements and a reduction in wildfire risk.

“Not managing your forest, it’s a fire hazard. My neighbor, what he does impacts me, what I do impacts my neighbor.”

Frank Morado, Private/Residential Forest Landowner in North Idaho on why landowners should investigate forestry assistance options.
