Northern timberlands consist of approximately 625,000 acres in northern Idaho. Our Idaho timberlands are the most productive Pacific Northwest timberlands east of the Cascades.
PotlatchDeltic is the largest private landowner in Idaho and has over 100 years of operating experience in the region. Our Idaho timberlands are unique with much higher values than other timberlands in the Inland West due to favorable productivity, our species mix and unique market dynamics.
We own approximately 625,000 acres of timberlands in northern Idaho. Species we grow include Douglas Fir, Western Larch, Western Red Cedar, Grand Fir, Ponderosa Pine, Engelmann Spruce, and Western White Pine.
Approximately one-third of timber harvested from our Idaho lands is sold to PotlatchDeltic lumber and plywood mills in St. Maries, Idaho. The remainder is sold to other area wood products and paper manufacturers.
PotlatchDeltic is committed to sustainable forest management. For us that means we want to make sure that people enjoy the many benefits of healthy, managed forests both today and in the future. In Idaho, all of our timberlands are third-party certified annually under the Sustainable Forestry Initiative ® (SFI ®) standards. SFI promotes sustainable forestry practices through a set of standards that seek to promote healthy productive forests through protecting factors such as water quality, biodiversity and wildlife habitat.
Our northern timberlands offer a wide range of recreation opportunities. Recreational permits can be purchased for use across most of our Idaho lands. In addition, exclusive campsite leases are available in select areas of North Idaho.
