Forest Restoration Project Planned for North Idaho

Benito Baeza

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service has released a draft impact statement for a restoration project in the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forest in northern Idaho.

The Lewiston Tribune reports the recently released plan calls for a mix of timber harvest, prescribed fire, road obliteration and culvert replacement in a 44,000-acre area 5 miles southeast of Kooskia. The plan includes multiple timber sales over several years the agency says would produce up to 85 million board feet of timber and create up to 2,000 jobs.

The plan is the result of a 5-year collaborative process by the Forest Service and Clearwater Basin Collaborative, made up of county commissioners, timber industry representatives and conservation organizations.
