When a wood mill gets a wood processing equipment lease, it doesn’t mean that all of the old equipment will be coming to an end.
In fact, many of the same equipment that used to be there will continue to operate.
“There’s going to be a lot of new equipment out there that will be very, very good,” said Dave Schoenfeld, senior manager of timber purchasing at the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
He said the equipment that is being bought by the state will be used in a variety of ways.
“We’ll see that there will be some new equipment, some old equipment, but most of it’s going be recycled,” he said.
He says that with the equipment being purchased, the state is going to have to do a lot more work with the companies that buy it.
“If you’ve got a big piece of equipment that’s a big part of a lot that’s been done in the past, you’re going to want to take it out and get a replacement,” he added.
A lot of the equipment going to the state, Schoenfield said, will be the same that’s being used in the mills now.
That includes sawmills that were once used to make timber for the mills, but now are being used for timber processing.
That can include mills that once produced timber for timber mills, and now produce the same timber for other industries.
He also says the state has been doing a lot with the mills that are going to end up in the state’s forests.
“The timber processing equipment is going out there and being recycled,” Schoenfeind said.
“They’ve got to be.
There’s a lot going on out there.
We’re not just going to just throw them away.
We’ve got tons of stuff out there.”
Some of the things that are being bought in the new purchase are equipment that has to be cut down for a specific purpose, like when it comes to making saws.
In the past that process required the mill to build a fence around the sawmill.
Now it can be done in a very small footprint.
“It’s not like a fence is going up in your backyard and blocking your access to the outdoors,” Schienfeld said.
Some of that equipment is also going to need to be upgraded, but not as much as the equipment the mill used to produce the lumber.
The equipment that will go out to mills that will end up being recycled includes a sawmill that was once used for making sawmill machinery.
They’re going out to be recycled, so that means there’s going a lot new equipment.” “
These machines are not going to go away.
They’re going out to be recycled, so that means there’s going a lot new equipment.”
He said there are a lot fewer machines in the forests that were made for timber harvesting and that the new equipment that was going to make the saw mills is going into those mills.
“With the new machines that we’re getting, there’s not a lot you can do with those machines,” he explained.
“A lot of those machines are going into the mill that will now make the new saw mills.”
It’s also not clear exactly how much new equipment the state expects to purchase.
“I don’t know if they’ve announced it, but they’re getting new equipment and then the mills will have to get a new piece of machinery,” Schoonfeind explained.
In a year, the mill is expected to have about $300 million worth of equipment in the milling business.
He estimated that if all the equipment went out and was recycled, it would take about a year to complete the project.
“One of the big challenges in the lumber industry is that we’ve got about 500,000 acres of forest that we have to manage,” he noted.
“And the mills have a lot to do.
They’ve got the equipment and they’ve got workers that have to be out there, and the machinery, and there’s a whole bunch of other things that we don’t have to deal with as a lumber industry.”
He added that he’s hoping that the state can keep the mills going, but at the same time, the mills can keep working and be profitable. “
So we’re seeing the mills making more money, and it’s creating jobs in the region.”
He added that he’s hoping that the state can keep the mills going, but at the same time, the mills can keep working and be profitable.
“But there’s definitely going to continue to be problems with the mill as it matures,” he warned.
For example, he said, the equipment is often old, and that will lead to more problems down the road.
The state is looking to continue supporting the mills and to keep working with them to make sure they stay running
