The lumber heritage runs deep at Idaho Forest Group. Restoring and rebuilding steam engine saw mills is a testament to not only the humble beginnings of IFG, but also to one of the area’s most important industries. It’s a way to preserve a piece of history in an interactive, educational way.
A team of about 15 employees have taken training and classes so they can run the restored steam engines and steam-powered mills. All restoration work is also done in-house by IFG.
