Timber Sale Query
The state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has designed a Query tool to assist prospective purchasers in identifying state timber sales that meet their needs. The timeframe for DNR's Timber Sale Web Search Application is the current month plus the next two months. For example: February, March and April. The tool allows the user to look at sale specifics such as: DNR Region in which the sale or sales are located, tree species, average DBH range, rings per inch, percentage of a species in the sale and percentage of grade.
The Query uses dropdown menus to make choices. Instructions are available on the Query site by clicking on the ‘user documentation’ in the bottom left of the query page, or to the right under Files.
SURVEY PRICES FOR ‘DELIVERED LOGS’
DNR conducts a ‘Delivered Log Price Survey’ each month, receiving ‘Street Price’ quotes from selected Forest Product Producers and Purchasers in Washington, Oregon and Idaho. The prices are aggregated by species and log grades. Price summaries are published by marketing area within Washington. The log price tables list the average, range and the number of “quotes” received for each species and grade. Log prices are for domestically processed logs and reflect what the purchaser is willing to pay for a log delivered at the mill.
NOTE: The log price quotes gathered by DNR are received anonymously and not available for distribution. Prices are for informational purposes only, and may not reflect what any given mill or purchaser is actually willing to pay for a log.
