Stikine River Forest Products announced Monday evening plans to build a mill in Petersburg, AK, according to the Petersburg Pilot.
Owner John Glenn said he has located a piece of property near the airport that exists within industrial zoning and has power and water connections.
Construction of the mill would be done in two phases. Phase one would consist of a full breakdown large mill capable of manufacturing 100,000 board feet per shift. The second phase would consist of a small log processing line that can handle logs within 4 to 16 inch diameters—young growth—which aligns with local forest service management strategies. Glenn said his mill would produce about 20 million board feet per year.
