PotlatchDeltic announced changes to public access to its Idaho timberlands. Due to severe fire danger in the region, effective immediately and until further notice, all public use of PotlatchDeltic privately-owned timberlands for recreation is suspended. The extreme fire season and continued dry conditions in Idaho are stressing available firefighting resources and risking public safety, property, and impacting wildlife. PotlatchDeltic has closed public access to its ownership areas, including the use of PotlatchDeltic roads and walk-in access. Leased campsites must be vacated before August 1, 2021. The temporary closure is permitted under the access terms in the Idaho Department of Fish and Game's Large Tracts Program. Several other area landowners who participate in the Program have also recently suspended access due to the excessive fire danger. PotlatchDeltic is a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) that owns approximately 1.8 million acres of timberlands in Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Louisiana, Minnesota and Mississippi.
