Land Closure Announcement

July 30, 2021

Stimson Lumber Company is committed to protecting its forest resources and public safety. The ongoing drought and hot summer temperatures have substantially increased the risk of wildfire. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to close all of Stimson’s Inland Region timberlands to public access and recreation, effective immediately.

The public’s use of open Stimson roads and walk-in access to our privately-owned timberlands in northern Idaho, western Montana and eastern Washington is now closed due to the extreme risk.  Stimson will regularly evaluate the situation but anticipates the closure will last until wetting rains reduce the hazard later in the season. For inquiries about the closure, contact our office in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho at (208) 762-6559. Go to Recreational Access for additional information on the company’s public access program.

Stimson Lumber Company is a family-owned forest products company based in Portland, Oregon. The firm owns over 600,000 acres of timberland in the Pacific Northwest and is a leading producer of forest products in the U.S.

We take pride in over a century of sustainable forestry management. Our commitment to the SUSTAINABLE FORESTRY INITIATIVE® program is ongoing. Our scientifically proven forestry practices are grounded in our vision of investing in the forest to benefit future generations.
