Weyerhaeuser has been unsuccessful in its application for a Crown wood supply allocation for its Wawa, Ontario, OSB mill, effectively dashing hopes the mill could reopen within the next year, reports Wawa News.

Weyerhaeuser was among 115 applicants that responded to the provincial government’s wood supply competition last November, which aimed to allocate up to 11 million m3 of Ontario’s unused wood.The Wawa OSB mill, which has an annual capacity of 470 million ft2, closed in 2007.

A spokesperson for Weyerhaeuser said the company was disappointed and had spoken to the government with a view to determining what options were available.
