Renewable and sustainable in Idaho forests

Idaho forests are managed for today and generations to come

A sustainable forest is managed to meet current environmental, economic and social needs while assuring future generations the opportunity to meet those same needs.  All Idaho forestland owners must comply with state and federal environmental laws that protect forest resources. Many forest owners also enroll in voluntary certification programs that provide consumers with third-party verification of sustainable management practices.
