Weyerhaeuser to close another mill

1 February 2007 — Lebanon (OR): Weyerhaeuser is to close the Bauman sawmill in Lebanon, Oregon.

The sawmill processes large douglas fir logs which are becoming increasingly harder to buy.

 

Rob Taylor, VP of lumber technologies, said: "The timber market is being eroded by more cost-effective, alternative engineered lumber products."

 

The closure is expected to affect roughly 70 employees.
