Weyerhaeuser Company has completed its acquisition of Longview Timber LLC. The deal includes approximately 645,000 acres of timberlands in Washington and Oregon.
"This acquisition is a truly unique opportunity for us to grow our high-value timberlands assets west of the Cascade Mountains," said Dan Fulton, president and CEO of Weyerhaeuser.

The acquisition of Longview, which previously belonged to affiliates of Brookfield Asset Management, increases Weyerhaeuser’s presence in the Pacific Northwest timberlands by 33% to total about 2.6 million acres.
