Timber Extraction

The Forest Department, on the basis of scientific principles of forest management, identifies trees that can be harvested from the forests and marks them. These marked trees are handed over to the State Forest Corporation for their eventual felling, conversion and transportation to markets. At present, such markings are restricted to dry standing and fallen trees only in pursuance to the orders of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. The SFC extracts timber in sawn as well as log form from the trees handed over to it.

Timber Sales

The SFC conducts regular auctions of timber from its sales depots located in Kashmir Valley, Jammu and Ladakh. The Corporation also supplies timber to consumers on subsidised rates for house construction and repairs in the Municipal Corporation areas of Jammu and Srinagar cities.
