Manitoba's Timber Dues Tables

 

Using Manitoba's Timber Dues Tables

Timber dues for each timber class will be determined by referring to commodity prices published weekly in Pulp and Paper Weekly (RISI) and Random Lengths. All weeks within the month with published prices will be averaged to establish the monthly commodity price. The calculations used to create the month's commodity prices are available on the Current Timber Dues page.

Once the month's commodity prices have been determined the appropriate rate is looked up on the following Manitoba's Timber Dues Tables. These tables have three separate columns identifying different rates based on the Forest Management Units where the timber was harvested. Use the maps or the lists of FMUs (bottom of each table) to determine the applicable timber dues rate.

Note: As of April 1st, 2010 there were no Newsprint mills operating in Manitoba. When a Newsprint Mill begins to accept timber these Dues Rates will be reassessed.

October 23, 2015 - RISI has changed the grade designation for graphic paper prices. The change represents a change in name only and does not represent a change in what is covered in these assessments.
