Stumpage Price Report

This series of reports, updated quarterly, summarizes bid prices from State Forest timber sales. The data in the Average Stumpage Price Report are is used to provide DNR staff base information for determining a minimum acceptable bid for future timber sales. A separate report lists bids for the individual sales, again from State Forest timber sales. The Bid Summary Reports can be viewed here.

The State Forest is located north of a line from Bay City to Ludington. There is no published price data available from the private lands in southern Michigan. Calling a local sawmill for prices on delivered timber is the best source of information. Sawmills can be found in the Michigan Forest Products Directory.

Texas

Resources

Texas Timber Price Trends

Timber Price Trends Report is a bimonthly publication of the Texas A&M Forest Service reporting average prices paid for standing timber, commonly called the "stumpage price." Average stumpage prices are calculated from actual timber sales as reported by more than 60 cooperators active in the East Texas timber market. Values are weighted by volume sold to filter out the effect that size of sale has on price paid. Thus, the average price reported is the average price paid per unit of wood, NOT per average timber sale. Price series for five or more product categories are reported for two reporting regions from eastern Texas and extending back to 1984.
