BC Timber Sales - Timber Sale Licences (TSLs)

BC Timber Sales (BCTS) sells about 10-13 million cubic metres of Crown timber through competitive auction. This timber is available to loggers, wood processors and other forestry businesses. The public auction of timber sales licences determines the market value of timber harvested from Crown land, which is then used to set the stumpage rate.
