Operations at Delta Timber have shifted to an emphasis on timber by-products, explains managing partner Eric Sorenson. Stacks of lumber recently seen at the Hwy. 92 site were drying and awaiting planing. That has now been completed and the inventory has been moved. The mill is currently shut down. Sorenson said that a contract to sell the mill fell through, but other potential buyers are being sought. “We hope to find someone who can improve it and get it running,” he said.
