Timber sales offered again

Mon., Dec. 26, 2011

HAMILTON, Mont. – U.S. Forest Service officials say significant changes have been made to two potential timber sales in the Bitterroot National Forest that received no bids earlier this month.

Bitterroot National Forest Supervisor Julie King said the agency reduced the minimum bidding price and extended how long companies have to complete the work.

One of the projects is the 210-acre Como Campground sale and involves nearly 700,000 board feet of timber. The other project is in the Sapphire Mountains.
