The IFRP mission is to connect, inform, and support collaborative groups working to restore the resilience of Idaho forests. Wood utilization can make a significant contribution to implement restoration projects across the state. Similar to forest restoration collaboratives, small log and woody biomass coalitions have formed within Idaho. The objectives of these utilization groups overlap with those of the Idaho forest collaboratives. IFRP supports the removal and utilization of forest products as a byproduct of forest restoration. Restoration treatments will increase the volume of materials harvested that lack established markets. New markets and conversion technologies for small logs and woody biomass are needed in order to implement forest restoration at a landscape scale.
IFRP provides this Open Forum with the following objectives:
Because the Forum
- Inform IFRP members about the potential markets for small logs and woody biomass.
- Connect Idaho utilization coalitions with forest restoration collaboratives.
- Support the exchange of information to increase the pace of forest restoration.
