“Given the cyclicality and capital-intensive nature of the sawmilling business, our capital structure is not the best structure in which to hold this type of asset,” said Paul McElligott, president and CEO of TimberWest Forest Corp.

“Our corporate focus is the timberland business and conversion assets are difficult for us to own and operate. Our future growth plans are focused on timberlands,” he added.
