While I hope that there will be no sale at all, I'm not too optimistic, OldBoy.
The strip mining of this nation, its assets and natural resources began decades ago. Our energy, water and transportation is all in private hands now, resulting in massively higher prices and crappier service (or as poor). I think the government will sell some of the woodland, with some stipulations designed to appease those that object. Either way, it will find its way into private hands that will find loopholes in the stipulations.
I could be wrong but, no private interest is going to buy the land, unless its going to be profitable for them to do so. That'll either come from the public paying in some form, building something on the land, or making use of the wood or other resources on the land.
