Potlatch Corporation Lifts Idaho Forestland Closure

SPOKANE, Wash., September 9, 2015 – Recent rainfall, higher humidity and generally lower temperatures have resulted in Potlatch removing the previously announced closure and campfire ban on its Idaho forestlands. Access is now allowed in accordance with company recreation policies. 

The unprecedented closure of Potlatch land went into effect on July 14. The company reported that compliance with the closure was very high. “We greatly appreciate the way in which the public honored our closure,” said Darin Ball, Idaho Region Manager. “It was gratifying to see our forest users play an important role in reducing risks during this fire season.”
