The department shall, within 15 days after receipt of such notice from the owner, certify the stumpage value, if any, to the owner and to the county treasurer of the county or counties in which the tract is situated. No later than 30 days after receipt of such certification of value, the owner shall pay a six per centum tax on the certified stumpage value to such county treasurer.
