County will hold 'fire' sales of wood

Email

Hubbard County will schedule salvage timber sales for the north region hit hard by windstorms earlier this month.

That will allow loggers to harvest damaged timber from the debris left when 80 mph winds tore through the Becida area July 2.

The board discussed having a timber sale in August and one possibly in September.

"The wood snapped off," said Land Commissioner Mark Lohmeier. "It's gonna lose a lot of weight" if not harvested soon.
