From the Hill article John Robshaw, president and chief executive officer of the Woodland Alliance, said the alliance is working with timber companies to cut timber production in order to save trees.
He also said the industry is moving forward with a plan to invest $250 million in a new greenfield wood product plant in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Woodland, which is part of the U.S. Wood Alliance, has already invested $100 million in new greenhouses and other infrastructure in the area.
Robsaws said the plan includes a $250,000 investment to establish a new $200 million greenfield manufacturing plant in North Texas that would produce timber for the Alliance.
“It’s a really ambitious plan, and I think it’s a bold, ambitious move to grow our wood product,” Robsaw said.
“We’re very optimistic about the progress we’re making.”
The alliance plans to invest more than $1 billion in the new plant, which would be one of the largest wood products plants in the world.
The alliance is also investing $1.3 billion in new infrastructure that would allow for the growth of its tree and timber products, such as new processing facilities, more shipping containers and a new logging facility.
The Alliance’s investments are part of a broader effort to help create jobs in the wood industry.
The Wood Alliance is a trade association that represents the United States and Canada’s lumber industries.
The organization is a lobbying group that represents wood companies, including Woodland.
Woodlands president and CEO John Robowsky said the Alliance is working closely with the wood companies to help them get started on their new greenfields projects.
“I think we’re going to see a huge improvement in the future,” Robowski said.
He said he expects the Alliance will work with a range of other companies to create jobs.
“The Alliance is going to be a strong partner in helping these companies get started,” Robusky said.
The new plant would be the first of its kind in the United State and Canada, Robsaid.
“This is the first greenfield factory that we’re seeing,” he said.
Roboses said the Wood Alliance has also been involved in a national plan to develop a wood supply chain that will be able to meet demand for wood products in the years to come.
“For the Alliance, it’s about the future of the wood product and it’s very important for us to see this as a catalyst for growth,” Robosaid.
Robesaid said the new project would be a key part of Woodlands plan to increase its presence in the Texas-Oklahoma border region.
