The Kootenai National Forest works together with local businesses and citizens to manage your forest and its infrastructure. We contract services including timber sales, tree thinning projects, trail construction, janitorial services, and more. We also purchase from local vendors to obtain needed supplies to support fire incidents.

The Forest Service often hires equipment to aid with fire and other incident support. Reference the Northern Rockies Coordinating Group (NRCG) Contracting for Fire website for more information.
