C.R.S. Section 36-7-103
Disposition of timber on state lands


The state board of land commissioners, referred to in this article as the “board”, is authorized to sell and otherwise dispose of timber on state lands; to secure the maximum possible amount therefrom, based upon cruised and appraised quantities thereon, location, accessibility, and market conditions; to issue permits of authority for timber cuttings; and to require cash deposits in advance to apply on such timber-cutting permits. In cases in which the appraised value of timber involved in any proposed sale exceeds five thousand dollars, competitive bids shall be received by the board, after call for such bids has been advertised over a thirty-day period in three issues of a newspaper of general circulation in each county in which the timber is located.


The board, when contracting with the Colorado state forest service, shall direct the service to use the appropriate methods necessary to ensure proper management of state trust lands whenever the board contracts for the disposition from state lands of timber that:


Has been infested with bark beetles; or


Is harvested from a forest whose health is otherwise in decline or from which the board anticipates declining revenues due to forest health factors.
