Idaho Forest Restoration Partnership
The partnership was formed to help strengthen collaborative forest restoration efforts across Idaho. The partners have agreed to support four principles in a common vision for our forests:
- In Idaho's forests, strategic forest restoration is essential to address the current challenges posed by uncharacteristic wildfire, insects, disease and climate change.
- Active management is needed in some areas of public forests to restore their resiliency.
- A healthy forest industry is an important and necessary part of a restoration strategy to offset restoration costs and to provide jobs and economic stability in rural communities throughout Idaho.
- Collaborative groups can provide useful advice and recommendations on forest restoration projects, through cooperation between citizens, including interest groups, elected officials, and pubic land managers
