Shares of timber sale revenue benefits goes to 15 counties
Start Date: 10/9/2018
Event Description:

Fifteen counties will receive shares of nearly $210,500 in DNR timber sale net revenue to help support public safety efforts of rural and volunteer fire departments, announced DNR director Cameron Clark.

The DNR Division of Forestry allocates 15 percent of timber-sale revenue from State Forests to counties in which harvests occur. Each county shares the funds it receives with rural and volunteer fire departments that maintain a cooperative agreement with the DNR’s Fire Control Headquarters.

The program is distributing $210,517.38 this year. From that amount, $62,933.04 will go to the various fire departments. Counties have the discretion to allot up to 50 percent of the revenue to the local fire departments.

Although timber-sale revenue helps fund several DNR Division of Forestry programs, DNR’s forestry management focus is to improve and maintain forest health for long-term sustainability, as required by state law.

DNR Forestry management practices are based on the best science and nationally accepted standards, and conducted in a certified sustainable manner that earns continued approval from both national and international sustainability standards. This is the 10th year DNR Forestry has received that approval.

This year, 116 rural and volunteer fire departments will benefit from the shares. Fire departments are encouraged to use the funds to improve their wildland firefighting capability.
