The professionals in the Forest Management program coordinate and administer inventory, forest improvement and sale of forest products from State Endowment Trust lands while improving the health and vigor of the state forests for maximum long-term financial return.
In response to industry requests, the Department developed an online timber sale information Web site located at this link: https://apps.idl.idaho.gov/timbersale/Search.aspxThe Web site includes the following information:
› Current Fiscal Year Sales Plans;
› Next Fiscal Year's Proposed Sale Plan;
› Notice of Proposed Timber Sale Advertisements;
› Links to IDL's Public Web Sites;
› Customers and the general public will be able to set up user accounts to receive email notifications of sale updates/changes;
› Purchasers can set up secure accounts for access to post sale documents, such as sale contracts and bond forms;
› Ability to search for timber sales by various search criteria, such as Supervisory Area, sale name, auction date or sale type;
› Access timber sale information, such as sale maps, volume estimates, road development, logging cost estimates and sale appraisal information.
› Timber Sales - Volumes exceeding 1,000 MBF with an appraised value of more than $150,000. These sales are advertised for four weeks in a newspaper in the county where the sale is located and are sold at public auction.
› Salvage Sales - Volumes not exceeding 1,000 MBF with an appraised value of $150,000 or less. These sales are advertised for one week in a newspaper in the county where the sale is located and are sold at public auction.
› Direct Sales - Volumes not exceeding 100 MBF with a value of $15,000 or less. Generally used to harvest isolated parcels of timber of insufficient value to justify advertisement, these sales require no advertisement and are not used if more than one party is interested in the timber involved.
Each fiscal year the Department of Lands presents a proposed Timber Sales Plan, Road Development Plan and Letters of Transmittal to the State Board of Land Commissioners for approval. Each sale listed in the Plan is subsequently presented to the Land Board for individual approval prior to advertisement and sale. Road construction and reconstruction, as outlined on the Road Development Plan, is necessary to develop or improve access for timber harvest and other management activities.
