Timber Sales

Timber sales are a big part of the Forestry Department. There are numerous reasons why we set up timber sales. The three main reasons are:

• To open up areas for homesites, roads, etc.
• To improve the stand condition for remaining trees.
• To capture some economic value from the forest.

The money generated from timber sales goes to the rightful ownerships. Leech Lake Reservation consists of: Minnesota Chippewa Tribe lands, Leech Lake Band lands, and Allotments. If you are curious whether or not an allotment you are an heir to is having a timber sale considered, please refer to the “Allotments” page within the “Forestry” directory.
