UI Extension Forestry
Bringing the university to the people of Idaho.
Idaho has abundant forest land, with over two million acres owned and managed by thousands of family forest owners. Most of Idaho's forest landowners share a common goal — to be good land stewards, to achieve objectives set for today and leave a healthy and productive legacy for future generations.
Knowledge empowers people to make changes. The UI Extension Forestry website is part of a multi-faceted educational program designed to increase the knowledge base that Idaho's forest landowners and managers use to plan and implement natural resource management activities, plans, rules and laws.
Whether you want to harvest timber, make your woodland home and landscape more resistant or plan for your forest's future, we are confident you will find the information you need here.
