[DNR] Forestry shares timber revenue with 17 counties
Start Date: 1/10/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 1/10/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
The DNR Division of Forestry has notified 17 counties they will receive shares of more than $380,000 as part of an annual distribution of timber sale revenue.

The Division of Forestry allocates 15 percent of all revenue from timber sales administered by Division personnel on state-owned land to counties in which harvests occur. Each county receiving funds shares half with rural and volunteer fire departments that maintain a cooperative agreement with the DNR’s Fire Control Headquarters.

This year, 134 rural and volunteer fire departments will benefit. Fire departments are encouraged to use the funds to improve their wildland firefighting capability.

Brown $65,946.97
Clark $57,377.01
Crawford $13,501.60
Dubois $13,731.02
Greene $ 911.08
Harrison $37,454.09
Jackson $16,423.94
Jennings $ 5,236.16
Martin $35,258.56
Monroe $57,094.85
Morgan $15,284.75
Owen $19,099.15
Perry $ 3,611.42
Pike $ 5,280.98
Scott $ 4,190.30
Sullivan $ 1,325.30
Washington $29,713.48

This year’s total ($381,440.66) is nearly triple the revenue share in 2005 ($135,000) and reflects an increase in state forest timber sale volume from 3.5 million board feet to 14.1 million board feet, even though less than 2 percent of the marketable timber in state forests is being harvested.
