County Timber - Notice of Sale

Pursuant to the order of the County Board of Carlton County, and provisions of Minnesota Statute 282 and as amended, the following timber on tax-forfeited lands will be offered for sale WITHOUT the sale of the land on Thursday, December 6, 2012, at 10:00 AM at the Carlton County Transportation and Tax Forfeit Land Building, 1630 Co. Rd. 61, Carlton, Minnesota.

Only those on the Responsible Operator List are qualified to bid on a Timber Sale.  To see if you are on the Responsible Operator List, visit the Carlton County website www.co.carlton.mn.us  or call the Carlton County Land Department at 218-384-9179.  Any person or company may apply to be on the Responsible Operator List.  Contact the Carlton County Land Department at 218-384-9179 or visit the Carlton County website www.co.carlton.mn.us for a Contractor Application Form.

Timber will be sold by oral auction to the highest bidder at not less than the appraised value, and in conformity with the forest practices as outlined in the timber permits and appraisal.  Bidding shall be on a percentage basis, in increments of 5%, and the right to accept or reject any or all bids is reserved. 

Immediately after the sale, the successful bidder may:

            A.  Make payment in full, or

            B.  Make a down payment of 15% of the appraised price of the
                 sale.

Payment or a Letter of Credit securing the entire unpaid balance or a cutting block thereof must be made prior to cutting.

Permits to cut and remove the timber from the land will be issued to the purchaser.  Winter logging condition permits will expire March 31, 2015; summer logging condition permits will expire December 31, 2014. The County for good and sufficient reasons may extend the permit beyond the expiration date stated.  In general, renewals will be granted when overruns are paid up to date, and upon proof of good reason, for one (1) additional year for $100.00 or 5% of the uncut balance, whichever is greater.

Payment of all overruns must be made within 30 days of notification by the Land Department.  Ten (10) percent interest will be charged on all overruns exceeding thirty (30) days.  Any interest computation for a portion of a month will be deemed to be a whole month.  If payment is not made before 90 days, all other timber permits which the defaulting bidder has with Carlton County will be closed until payment is made in full.  Overruns not paid within 90 days may be considered as a timber trespass.

*PLEASE NOTE THAT CERTAIN CONDITIONS HAVE BEEN ADDED TO PERMITS TO MEET SITE-LEVEL FOREST MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES.

Access to all tracts, both legal and physical, is the responsibility of the bidder, and should be thoroughly investigated prior to bidding.  Operators will be required to restore any/all roads used to access the permits areas to at least their original condition.  Please continue to page 2 for a list of the offered timber tracts.  APPRAISALS AND AERIAL PHOTOS ARE ON THE CARLTON COUNTY WEBSITE www.co.carlton.mn.us.
