Forest Action Plan

The Idaho Forest Action Plan

The Idaho Forest Action Plan is a long-term, coordinated strategy for reducing threats to Idaho’s forests while increasing the social, economic, and environmental benefits they provide. IDL and a broad group of stakeholders and partners completed the plan, which includes urban and rural forests across all ownerships. The purpose of the Forest Action Plan is to help landowners and managers in Idaho identify projects and activities that reduce threats and increase the benefits of Idaho’s forests.
