Weyerhaeuser may sell



Weyerhaeuser has said it would consider an offer for the purchase of its pulp mill in Cosmo-polis, but warned Washington governor Christine Gregoire and state legislators not to get their hopes up.
Following the announcement of the mill’s planned closure, Gregoire and state officials asked the forest products firm to contemplate a sale and committed $50,000 to study the potential market for the mill.
In a letter to Gregoire, Weyerhaeuser COO Rich Hanson warned of significant challenges in running the mill, including high maintenance, energy, chemical and other costs.
