All volumes reported in thousand board feet (MBF) Scribner. Ownerships considered private include: Industrial private (Industry), Nonindustrial private forests (N.I.P.F), and Native American tribes (Tribal). Ownerships considered public include: Idaho Department of Lands (State), United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service (Forest Service), Bureau of Land Management (BLM), County and Municipal (Other Public).



Private timber harvest data were collected from the Idaho Department of Lands (IDL) from 2002 to present. Data represents MBF volumes for all private timber harvested by calendar year. The volumes are separated between industrial and non-industrial private ownership.



For timber harvests occurring on Idaho Department of Lands (State) it was necessary to make several extrapolations to present harvest volumes at the county level. The IDL was able to provide total timber harvest volumes on their lands by calendar year. These annual timber harvest volumes were portioned out at the county level after consulting the most recent Idaho FIDACS (Forest Industries Data Collection System) report: http://www.bber.umt.edu/FIR/S_ID.asp#fidacs



For timber harvests on the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) timberlands, data were collected from the BLM Timber Harvest Information System, located at the Denver, Colorado office. This system separates timber harvests into four categories: commercial harvests, fuel wood, special forest products (timber harvests that are too small to be viewed as commercial), and stewardship contracting. The BLM data presented here represent the sum of these four categories. BLM data can be found at: http://www.blm.gov/or/resources/forests/blm-timber-data.php



For timber harvests occurring on U.S. Forest Service lands, data were compiled from annual U.S. Forest Service Automated Timber Sales Accounting System-Volume and Harvested Revenue-State and County Summaries from 2001-2012. Data were retrieved in fiscal year by quarter and converted to calendar year by subtracting the October-December quarter data from prior fiscal year and adding the October-December quarter data from the subsequent fiscal year. Forest Service data include all convertible products including fuelwood and non-saw material.
