Taking burned trees to the bank

Thirteen of 15 Idaho Department of Lands timber fire salvage sales this fall brought in more than $17.5 million, and two more sales that will be auctioned before spring will bring in even more money.

While nearly 80 percent of the total salvaged timber will come from fires that burned in Idaho County, 15 percent will come from Shoshone County, where 12.2 million board feet across 750 acres will be salvaged from endowment lands that burned in the Avery Complex fire. Another 490,000 board feet across 60 acres in Bonner County will be salvaged from endowment lands that burned in the Cape Horn Fire near Bayview. Full story. Cda Press
