Timber is periodically offered for sale from state-managed forest land.  Sales are conducted for the purposes of harvesting mature and over mature trees, responding to past or predicted insect and disease outbreaks, salvaging fire-damaged trees, enhancing wildlife habitat and improving forest health.

Timber Sale Online Bidding is an application to help prospective timber purchasers monitor upcoming offerings and to submit bids.  To use the system, you must register in person at a DNR office.  View office locations. For more information about the system or about state timber sales in general, call or email Doug Heym, Timber Sales Specialist (517-284-5867, heymd@michigan.gov) with questions.
