Timber Sales on Lincoln County Forest Lands Continue to Pay Off
Published on 02/21/2020 under News Lincoln County residents continue to benefit from the county's forest lands, not only recreationally, but also financially. At their meeting Tuesday, the Lincoln County Board approved the 2019 Annual Forestry report as prepared by forestry administrator Kevin Kleinschmidt. According to that report, the county operates just over 100,000 acres of forest land. The timber sales from those lands generated nearly $2.5 million last year. Twenty percent of those funds, approximately $509,000 goes back into the county's general funds, while 10% or $255,000 is distributed to townships with county forest lands. The remaining dollars are put into the County Forestry Fund, with surplus transferred into the county's capital improvements budget. Kleinschmidt notes in the report that this is the second highest year of revenue from the timber sale program. In addition to the financial benefits, the report also covered the trail improvements, animal and land surveys, recreational opportunities, and tree plantings undertaken this past year. By approving the report, it will be entered into the 15 year comprehensive land use plan. It will also be posted to the public.
