Timber Harvest Plan
The Timber Harvest Plan for Cass County identifies timber stands that will be harvested and regenerated. The Plan is provided to inform the public of proposed harvest locations within Cass County and have input on our tactical planning. Strategic plans can be found in the Forest Resources Management Plan.
Our Timber Harvest Plan identifies harvest sites for the next ten years. With few exceptions, timber that is set up and sold at the Timber Auctions will be harvested within two to three years after being sold. Situations may occur where a sale is not identified on the plan due to salvage of damaged and/or diseased timber or other specific reasons. Some of the identified sales on the Timber Harvest Plan have already been set up and in some instances been sold at a Cass County Timber Auction. Changes cannot be made to these sales. Comments will be accepted on all other planned sales.
