Inventory and monitoring efforts conducted by Rocky Mountain Research Station scientists present a systematic compilation of forest statistics of the state.
Idaho’s forests cover almost 22 million acres, or about 39 percent of the State’s land area. These forests encompass a wide variety of environments and forest types that are valued for their scenic beauty, wood and non-timber forest products, wildlife habitat, and ecosystem services. There are 8,996 permanent forest inventory plots in Idaho, and those plots containing accessible forest land will continue to be measured by field crews every 10 years. The estimates for this summary were generated from data in the FIA database (FIADB) uploaded in February 2017 (FIA database download).
