Second Snohomish County mill to close

From The Associated Press:

 The Northwest Hardwoods lumber mill in Arlington is closing Thursday, putting about 40 people out of work.

 A vice president of the Tacoma-based company, Brian Narramore, told The Everett Herald the mill had problems with supply and demand — a shortage of local timber and a low demand for lumber for new houses.

 The sawmill has operated since 1967. It’s the second Snohomish County mill to announce its closing in a month. The Seattle-Snohomish mill in Snohomish is shutting down in March.
