The Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation Requests Input for a Proposed Timber Permit PUBLIC NOTICE The Plains Unit of the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation is developing plans for a proposed timber salvage permit. This proposed permit would be known as the Henry Divide Salvage Timber Permit. This proposed timber salvage permit is located approximately 7 air miles east of Plains, MT in the Camas Creek drainage, Section 36, Township 20 North, Range 25 West. This permit would likely sell in the spring of 2020 and is projected to generate approximately 500 thousand board feet of timber for the Common Schools Trust. This timber salvage permit is being considered to generate revenue for the Common Schools Trust Fund, improve forest health by salvage of insect and disease activity, to reduce excessive fuel loading and the related risk of wildfire, and to reestablish and promote timber types historically found in these areas. The proposed harvest would contribute to the DNRC's sustained yield as mandated by state statute 77-5-222. As an adjacent landowner or interested party, we request your input regarding this project. Your concerns and comments are needed to assist the DNRC in planning, analyzing, and implementing this project. We would appreciate your response by March 13, 2020 so that we may incorporate it into our planning process. Please send comments to: DNRC Plains Unit, ATTN: Dale Peters, PO Box 219, Plains, MT 59859 or by email to or by phone at 406-826-4722. Please direct oral or written comments to: Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation PO Box 219 Plains, Montana 59859 Attn: Dale Peters (406) 826-4722 E-mail: Published in the Clark Fork Valley Press on February 5, 12, 2020.
