Activity of outside bidders increased in western Washington and western Oregon daring the first nine months of 1977, when the National Forest Management Act made sealed bidding the prevalent form of timber sale. Participation of outside bidders increased the prices over those received under localized patterns of oral bidding during the period from July 1974 through June 1976. These conclusions are from an analysis of all national forest timber sales taking place in Washington and Oregon during the periods mentioned.
