New Arauco Michigan mill to convert low-grade wood into quality particleboard

GRAYLING, Mich. — Dying, deformed and diseased trees will be key ingredients of particleboard manufactured at the new Arauco panel mill in northern Michigan. “All of these degraded trees need to be removed to better manage our forests,” said Scott Robbins, director of the Michigan Sustainable Forestry Initiative Implementation and forest policy for the Michigan Forest Products Council (MFPC).
