Timber Pricing

Timber Pricing in B.C. involves setting stumpage rates, measuring the timber and billing for stumpage and forecasting forest revenue.

The Timber Pricing Branch is responsible for translating broad government direction into specific timber pricing policies and procedures and serves as the interface between government, the forest sector and the public on a broad range of matters relating to timber pricing.

Timber pricing involves appraising the value of timber, setting stumpage rates, measuring the timber and billing for stumpage and forecasting forest revenue.  Stumpage is the fee paid to the government for timber harvested from Crown land.
