IDAHO FOREST OWNERS ASSOCIATION
Through the regional quarterly magazine Northwest Woodlands and the quarterly Idaho Forest Owners Association Newsletter, field tours, and workshops, IFOA can help you keep up with forest management techniques and markets, forest property and estate taxes, environmental issues, and state and federal legislation. Through interaction with other landowners, you can share problems, exchange ideas, and work toward solutions.
In addition, you can join with other landowners to present a unified stand on private forestry issues and educate the public on the importance of private forest lands.
As a Private Forest Landowner -
Do you have questions about your rights as a property owner? Do you know how to increase the wildlife on your property? Do you understand property and estate taxes? Do you know the best way to grow and market your timber?
These are only a few of the topics of concern to private forest landowners. The Idaho Forest Owners Association is working to find the answers to the many questions relating to private woodlands. IFOA is an association of forest landowners unified in their efforts to promote private forestry in Idaho and legislation that helps achieve the goals of the Association.
Our Objectives are to:
-Encourage the multiple-use concept of forest management
-Preserve the rights of forest owners to practice forest management
-Educate the public on the value of the state’s forest resources and the need to manage them
-Cooperate with forest industry, state and federal agencies and other organizations in all areas which further the Association’s objectives
-Educate the public and forest landowners about the economic returns available from sound forest management
-Inform and educate members about legislative issues pertaining to forest land.
