WEYERHAEUSER PLANNING NEW OSB MILL

 GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alberta, May 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Weyerhaeuser (NYSE: WY) is proceeding with a proposal to construct and operate an oriented strand board (OSB) mill in Grande Prairie, according to Fred McDougall, Weyerhaeuser's general manager for the Engineered Fiber Products Business in Alberta.
 "The expansion is being driven by strong customer interest in selected industrial markets, by Weyerhaeuser's customer base in Japan, and by the growth plans of our Building Materials Distribution business in Canada and the U.S.," McDougall said. "In addition, it fits well with the current Forest Management Area in the Grande Prairie area, and it reinforces our continued confidence in Alberta as a very good place to do business."
 Weyerhaeuser understands that the Alberta government will soon be requesting proposals for the development of the unallocated poplar resource in the Grande Prairie area, and intends to have a strong proposal ready for public review.
 A full-time project team is being put in place to prepare the Weyerhaeuser proposal.
