Forest Service schedules Wrangell timber sales

The U.S. Forest Service says three small timber sales have been scheduled for Wrangell and Zarembo islands in southeast Alaska.

The Juneau Empire reports the Alto, Cello and Fiddle micro-sales are part of the service’s Roadside Timber Sale Program.

They are for 2,000, 4,000 and 8,000 board feet respectively.

The roadside program allows salvage of dead, dying or toppled trees plus some green saw timber.

The Forest Service says the sales were tailored to fit needs of Wrangell’s small-scale mills and wood businesses.
