The Surface Resources Group will post competitive leasing or requests for proposals here.

Putting Trust Lands to Good Use

Trust Lands are available for a variety of uses, including special use leases, livestock grazing, timber harvesting, easements, and short-term right of entry permits. The Surface Resources Group administers these uses and also carries out maintenance and rehabilitation projects to improve Trust Lands throughout the state.

Special Use Leases

Trust Lands are available to be leased for commercial, industrial, telecommunication, agricultural, residential, government, and other uses.

Easements

Easements are available for linear facilities such as power lines, pipelines, roads, and communications lines.

Livestock Grazing & Range Management

Livestock grazing is permitted on most trust lands and is an important component of our land stewardship efforts. 

Forest Management

The Trust’s forest resources are managed for long-term sustainability through targeted timber sales, fuels reduction projects, and other active management efforts. Timber sales improve long-term forest health by reducing wildfire risk, removing mature trees prone to disease, promoting the growth of young, disease-resistent trees, and creating conditions that allow the forest to renew itself.

Land Sales

The Trust Lands Administration offers properties for sale through periodic public auctions and negotiated sales. Please visit our land sales page for more details on upcoming sales.
