CEO cites forest service policy for Stimson closure

September 28, 2011

Within the next three months, the Stimson Lumber mill at Arden will close due to a combination of economic factors and federal policies that CEO Andrew Miller said are “a real shame.”
“While it is regrettable that the mill is closing, the real tragedy is what has happened on the Colville National Forest in recent years,” said Miller. “Our closure is the natural result of Forest Service policy.”
The Stimson Lumber operation currently employs 67 people in the area who will be out of work when the mill closes this winter, likely within 30 to 100 days, Miller said.
