INGY Cooperative
David Affleck, Director
(406) 243-4186


The cooperative consists of several private timberland owners, government agencies, and research institutions throughout the Inland Northwest.  Together, specialists and analysts from these organizations have been able to identify and tackle complex modeling and mensurational challenges that would not have been possible if working by themselves. By combining scarce resources (data, expertise, and funding) the cooperative has produced many products and results of mutual benefit.
