BLM Announces Results Of Timber Sale

Timber Solutions, Inc. of Polaris, Mont., was the successful bidder on a recent timber sale offered by the Bureau of Land Management in Dillon. The sale is in the Grasshopper Valley, about 27 miles northwest of Dillon, and north of Polaris. 

The sale, known as the Shale Creek Salvage, is the result of the BLM wanting to remove bug-killed timber and reduce fuel loading adjacent to the Wildland Urban Interface. Timber Solutions, Inc. will have 24 months to complete the contract.

The Shale Creek Salvage sale, which sold for $21,630, is made up of mixed conifer stands suitable for sawlogs, fuel wood, and biomass. The 212-acre Shale Creek Salvage sale consists of 948 MBF of softwood products and 150 tons of biomass.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
