DescriptionIn recent years there has been a great deal of concern about the closure of numberous hardwood face veneer and plywood mills in Michigan and Wisconsin. As part of an overall study of that industry in the northern Lake States region, the basic reasons leading to the closure of these mills were investigated. In the past 15 years, there have been eight known mill closures within the study area with an estimated total employment loss of 1,600 people. Presumably, each of these closures affected the economic equilibrium of the geographic areas in which they were located.
