RUSSELVILLE — Weyerhaeuser Corp. will apply to the city’s planning committee on Monday for approval to build a woodchip plant that will primarily serve the Japanese paper industry. Company officials told a commission subcommittee on Thursday that Weyerhaeuser will operate the plant in an environmentally friendly manner and the plant will not create significant noise or traffic problems. But some environmentalists and others fear that running the mill, along with two similar mills already in operation in the state, will clear large tracts of land, damaging wildlife habitat. The Planning Commission has the authority to approve the permit or refer the matter to the Russellville City Council for approval. Chip mills grind trees into small chips to make paper, and such mills may use lower quality wood than sawmills.
