I have been trying for 6 years to get a lot to cut from the state. Good luck there. The lots are either bigger than I can handle or too small. have a couple pens ready also as they want you to sign your life away before you can cut on state land. Also you have to go to school to learn how to cut a tree down. They seem to cater to the guys that can cut vast amounts of wood in short time frames.

What is the attraction to get a lot to cut from the state?

Better than half of the wood I cut is state wood. I mainly do contract for a big local mill. Cutting on the state you have to be Trained Logger Certified,  have workmens comp, liability and disability insurance. Cutting state wood is like cutting the cream of the crop. You have to follow alot of state guidelines for rutting, saftey procedures, etc.

Well, 6 years ago I needed wood to cut. Thought I could get a state chunk. They used to have small firewood lots. I guess what used to be and what is today are very different animals. Firewood is what I am after, any decent logs is a plus. With the many of cords of wood I see blown over or broke off on the state land I thought I could clean it up...make nice firewood. So much for thinking.

I have to agree with cream of the crop. In  some places more so than others. I can really see where forest management is paying off for the state. In some areas the woods are just magnificent.
