Illinois Timber Prices

End Load of Walnut in Bunks

The Illinois Agricultural Statistics Service, in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources - Division of Forest Resources, publishes Illinois Timber Prices twice a year. Stumpage and free-on-board (FOB) prices are reported by species group and product based upon a biannual survey of Illinois licensed timber buyers.

Prices reported in these bulletins are conservative and should only be used as a guide for establishing past and current timber values. These data are not a substitute for a professional appraisal or evaluation by a trained forester. It is always in the best interest of the owner to seek professional forestry assistance prior to selling trees or timber.
