Timber Sales – There are more than 150,000 acres of forested trust lands in Utah, or 860,000 acres if pinyon pine and juniper are counted. More than 35,000 acres of these forested trust lands have commercial value. The Trust Lands Administration offers several timber sales each year and are purchased by local sawmills, which make various timber products. The species most often purchased are Douglas fir, Engleman spruce, lodgepole pine, and aspen.
