Timber Up For Bid Tuesday

/ The Upper Cumberland's News Leader

The Tennessee Department of Agriculture Division of Forestry is offering standing timber on Standing Stone State Forrest for sale on bid starting Tuesday.

Standing Stone Forester Russel Fulcher said there is currently 46 acres of tulip popular trees ready to yield 498,114 board feet of saw timber.

“We are now starting to reach a stage at Standing Stone where a lot of the trees that grew up from the old farmland that the state acquired through the division of forestry, it’s getting to that saw timber stage.”

Most of the land that now makes up the State Forest was acquired between the years of 1936 and 1939. Fulcher said the trees usually take 80 years to be fully grown.

“It is on a 80 year rotation,” Fulcher said. “We go into little spots of the state forest, and we cut a little bit every year. That amount is determined by the size of the stand.”
