Timber Auction Packets

Timber Auction Bidding Opportunities

This page contains two types of opportunities to submit bids:
  • Timber sales at monthly public auctions held at region offices
  • Harvesting contracts for delivered logs, on an as-needed basis
The sold/remaining report below provides all sales by purchaser still under contract where volume remains to be harvested. This report is best used to track sale activity levels across months. Although sale sold and remaining values are listed in the report, this data should not be used to estimate potential revenues as those values shown do not represent final sale values. This report is updated monthly.
  Timber Sales Auction Packets & Auction Books
Links contain timber sales, statewide, scheduled for that month's auction(s). The packet for each sale contains pre-sales documents in PDF format prepared by DNR; each bidder must perform their own inspection and appraisal.
Timber sale maps within each sale's preview packet should contain georeferenced data (embedded latitudes and longitudes) that can be used with mobile mapping applications. Individual maps can be extracted from each packet using Adobe Acrobat. Individual maps are available upon request from the Region in which a sale exists if you do not have access to Adobe Acrobat or if a map has lost the georeferenced data. 
  Contract Harvest Bid Packets
DNR hires contractors to harvest and deliver log sorts from Contract Harvesting sales, including forest improvement treatment projects. Harvesters must pre-qualify to become an eligible bidder in the qualified bidder pool. Information regarding specific harvesting contracts is found in Harvester Bid Packets on the Current Bid Opportunities page, linked below. Eligible bidders will be notified of new projects. To become an eligible bidder fill out and submit and application packet linked below.
If you are not already pre-qualified, the link below is to the application packets.
