Area paper mills continue to have an oversupply of timber after Verso Paper in Sartell closed following a catastrophic fire last summer.

At the Nov. 6 board meeting, Land  Commissioner Josh Stevenson said the downturn in timber sales and prices continued at the Oct. 25 timber auction. Out of 17 tracts offered, only five sold. The average per cord price was $15.91, compared to $27 to $28 per cord earlier this year.  Nevertheless, Stevenson said the price Cass County is getting is consistent with neighboring counties.
