Natural Resources to maintain increased timber harvest levels, foresters told

PORT ANGELES — The state Department of Natural Resources will sell 104 million board feet of timber in Clallam, Jefferson and a portion of Grays Harbor counties in fiscal year 2008, said the state lands manager on Thursday.

“Our income will be $20 million in fiscal year 2008 [ending June 30],” said Al Vaughan.

Vaughan spoke to a joint meeting of the North Olympic Timber Action Committee and the North Olympic chapter of the Society of American Foresters held at Port of Port Angeles headquarters, 338 W. First St.

The sales will exceed the goal, Vaughn said.

“My goal was 100 million.”

And it will be the first time since 1990 that DNR annual timber sales have hit 100 million board feet, he added.

In 2009, DNR is projecting timber sales of 110 million board feet and income of $22 million, although those sales have yet to be prepared, he said.

“The goal’s going to hold. It’s 110 million board feet,” Vaughan said.
