LOS ANGELES , September 21, 2011 () – The Swanson Group plans to stop production at its Glendale, Oregon, plywood mill in the week of Oct. 3 because of limited log supplies, according to a report by Random Lengths.

The company said pressure from Chinese demand had driven open-market log costs to levels that were "well past the point of being economical."

Swanson said it would use the week of downtime to build up its log inventory, and warned that it expects intermittent periods of downtime related to log supply problems to continue throughout the winter and early spring.
