Westwind holds the right for 13.66% of the harvest volume from those areas made available in the Forest Management Plan. No Member Company is paying for the SFL fees. By carrying out Timber Sales and Negotiated Sales, Westwind secures these funds to continue to operate to fulfill the expectations as a SFL holder without a linked requirement for SFL fee increases. While the percentage share that Westwind holds may change over time, the principle of being self sustaining remains. Westwind can sell land to Member Companies that currently hold an Overlapping License Agreement with Westwind and non-member Companies that do not currently hold an Overlapping License Agreement with Westwind.
The Timber Sale Policy identifies principles and methodology for Westwind to distribute areas not otherwise assigned to Overlapping License Agreement holders in a fair and transparent manner while providing the SFL with the required level of funding.
