RY Timber, Townsend, Mt., will begin indefinitely closing its Townsend Mill due to a shortage of timber.
Seventy workers will be laid off, starting in April. The facility will be maintained, so it can be restarted once sufficient logs are available to return it to full production.
In the meantime, timber from previous timber sales will be diverted to RY’s mill in Livingston, Mt., so it can continue operating two shifts at full production.
