Rogue River Siskiyou NF

Two re-offered timber sales on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest were succsssful, according to Forest Supervisor Merv George, Jr. 

In a statement on July 27, George said that after continued dedicated efforts by employees, the agency was pleased to announce the successful re-offering of two recent timber sales: Wildhorse and Long Fire Salvage. He said both timber sales provide an opportunity to treat the forest landscape and reduce hazardous fuels while providing economic and forest health benefits. 

Wildhorse Re-offer Timber Sale, located on the Wild Rivers Ranger District, had received four responsive sealed bids at the time of the announcement.   

The apparent high bidder was Murphy Company of Eugene, according to the notice.  The sale is comprised of 3,202 MBF of Douglas-fir.  At the current bid rate, the total sale value is $196,794.  

Long Fire Salvage Re-Offer Timber Sale, located on the Gold Beach Ranger District, had received one responsive bid from CLR Timber Holdings, Inc of Brookings. This sale is comprised of 5,797 tons of Douglas-fir for a current total sale value of $12,579.  

Due to the possibility of responsive bids by mail, the award of both contracts would be delayed for seven days. 

 “I am pleased that we are continuing our hazard fuels reduction efforts on the forest. Being able to treat landscapes while helping provide rural jobs is a very important priority for our forest,” George said.
