On this page you will find out how DNR sells state trust land timber, and how we market timber and other forest products to earn income to build our public schools, universities, state mental hospitals and other institutions and to help fund local services in many counties. These diverse forests across the state offer many ways to generate income while providing fish and wildlife habitat and recreation and educational opportunities for the public.
Forest products from the 2.1 million acres of forested state trust lands include standing softwood and hardwood trees and special products such as poles. In addition, commercial brush-picking, bough sales, and other gathered commodities are part of the story.
New! DNR has developed a product sales viewer for timber and biomass sales that are proposed for auction. The viewer is interactive and will display the sale outline set against a back drop of aerial photos, and basic topographic or back ground maps. Click here for the user guide or proceed to the auction page to launch the tool.
