Weyerhaeuser Company has announced that, effective immediately, the Weyerhaeuser tree farms in Chelan, Clark, Cowlitz, Kittitas, Klickitat, and Skamania counties will be closed to public access due to extreme forest fire danger.
The closure will remain in effect until the operating areas receive adequate rainfall and the temperatures improve.
The company has also placed a number of limitations on its remaining tree farms in Washington and is considering additional closures if the forest fire danger continues to increase in the coming weeks.
The closures come about a week after Weyerhaeuser closes all of its tree farms in Oregon, also for forest fire danger.
Weyerhaeuser owns or controls more than 6 million acres of Timberlands, primarily in the United States, and manages another 14 million acres under long-term licenses in Canada.
