The IDL administers the Idaho Forest Practices Act (FPA), a law created in 1974 to promote active forest management and ensure that the health of forest soil, water, vegetation, wildlife, and aquatic habitat is maintained during the growing and harvesting of forest trees in Idaho.

The IDL provides assistance to landowners to establish healthy, sustainable forests and to promote compliance with the Idaho Forest Practices Act. Landowner and logger consultations, and frequent site inspections, ensure continuous growth and harvest of forest tree species; protect forest soil, air, water and resources, and maintain wildlife and aquatic habitat. Idaho’s Forest Practices identify standards for logging, road building, reforestation, streamside protection and other forest practices.
