Caring for the Forests - Index

As the population in Idaho and our nation grows, so does the demand for forest resources. The challenge is to supply the wood that a growing country needs, and also to accommodate more and more people looking for recreation opportunities.

Idaho's forestry professionals are working to meet this challenge. They know that caring for the forest means protecting our environment, while managing the forest for the needs of today's population and the generations to come. This includes reforestation, protecting forest resources such as streams and wildlife, managing forest health, applying improved tree genetics, and much more. Their knowledge of the forest's soil, water, fish, and wildlife is always growing, and the care they provide for the total forest environment becomes more important every day.
