We wish there was more info:
On March 21st the University of Alaska released an alarmingly vague Public Notice that states the following:
The University of Alaska received a notification of interest from a bona fide purchaser and will be entering into a 10 - year negotiated sale to harvest timber on the University’s Haines Parcels. The Haines Parcels total approximately 13,426 acres and are located within the Haines Borough.
There are no details on the buyer or the actual scale of the sale.
