Idaho's Timber Harvest Projections by Ownership to 2000: An Issue-Based Survey of Resource Managers
Abstract:Fifty of Idaho's forest resource managers were queried about their outlook for sawtimber harvests and issues impacting future harvest levels. Identical questionnaires were sent to managers representing national forests, other public lands, forest industry, and nonindustrial private lands. Managers were first asked to estimate the impacts of 12 specific issues on past and future harvest levels, and then to provide estimates of future harvest levels for the lands directly under their control or jurisdiction. Managers expected sawtimber harvests in Idaho to decline through the year 2000. Idaho harvest levels between 1994 and 1996 were expected to fall 4.6% from average levels in the base period of 1991-1993, with further declines of 14.6% expected in 1997-2000. Across all ownerships, the most significant issues expected to affect harvest levels in Idaho are threatened, endangered, and sensitive species; cumulative impacts; and new forestry techniques. West. J. Appl. For. 10(3):109-113.
