HR County Purchases 400 Acres Of Forestland From Weyerhauser

Hood River County is purchasing 400 acres of forestland from Weyerhauser for $1.78 million.  The County is buying the “Tucker Ranch” and “Kingsley” tracts, using funds gathered when the County sold land holdings in eastern Oregon over three years ago.  County Commission Chair Ron Rivers says this continues efforts to consolidate and improve County timber holdings, noting the Kingsley tract is of prime age and has several million board feet of potential lumber on it, while the Tucker Ranch tract provides access to prime County forestland they previously did not have access to.  The County still has $1.6 million remaining from the eastern Oregon land sale, but Rivers points out some of that must be used for something other than land acquisition.  He adds the County now holds about 34,500 acres of forestland.
