Commercial Timber Sales The forest products industry provi jobs and contributes $20 billion to Michigan’s economy.

Approximately 20% of the raw material used by this industry comes from state forest land. The peak of Michigan’s great timber harvest was reached in when mills cut a total of billion board feet of lumber, mostly pine. By the boom’s end, logging had stripped million acres, none of which was replanted, leaving vast tracts of barren wasteland.

The timber cruisers worked for the lumbermen and would select the best land available and reserve it at the land office for their employers. Much of this land sold for as little as $ an acre; and later, under the Homestead Act (), men were hired to claim a plot of acres and stay until the timber on it was cut.
