Sep 17, 2012. /Lesprom Network/. Weyerhaeuser Company announced effective immediately that all of its Western Timberlands operations in Washington and Oregon will be closed to public access due to the current extreme forest fire danger. The closure will remain in effect until the operating areas receive adequate rainfall and the temperatures improve, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.

In Washington, tree farms in the Vail, Aberdeen, Raymond and St. Helens operating areas will be indefinitely closed to public recreational access. The tree farms in Aberdeen and Raymond will have limited access to walk-in traffic only, but no motorized vehicles.

In Oregon, tree farms in the North Coast, North Willamette Valley, South Willamette Valley, Springfield, and Coos Bay operating areas will be indefinitely closed to public recreational access.

Weyerhaeuser Company, one of the world's largest forest products companies, began operations in 1900.
