PLUM CREEK DEAL KEEPS PUBLIC LAND OPENSENATOR BAUCUS MAKES A DEAL
Plum Creek Timber is turning over about a quarter of its Montana holdings in a deal backed by the federal government, which is pitching in $250 million, said U.S. Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont.
The land includes huge parcels in the scenic Swan Valley north of Missoula, and near the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area. The Nature Conservancy and The Trust for Public Land said the land will be managed as a working forest with places of harvestable timber.
PLAAI gas been closly monitoring the Plum Creek land dealings and holdings as they are often chekerboarded wtih public land and this pattern of owneship often results in de facto closures of the public land. (It is illegal to step over the corners of private land in checkerboard situations.)
