Weyerhaeuser Redeems Ownership in Twin Creeks Joint Venture

The company will also sell 100,000 acres of Southern Timberlands to Twin Creeks Timber LLC.

Weyerhaeuser Co. (NYSE: WY), Federal Way, WA, has announced the redemption of its 21 percent ownership interest in the Twin Creeks Timber LLC joint venture for $107.5 million. Twin Creeks was formed as a joint venture between Plum Creek Timber Company Inc. and several institutional investors. Following its merger with Plum Creek, in February 2016, Weyerhaeuser assumed Plum Creek's investment in the joint venture and became the manager of the Twin Creeks timberlands.

 The company also announced an agreement to sell 100,000 acres of Southern Timberlands to Twin Creeks for $202.5 million. The sale includes 80,000 acres of timberlands in Mississippi and 20,000 acres in Georgia and is expected to close by year end.

"Through these transactions, we are simplifying our operations to focus on management of our own timberlands while continuing to strategically optimize our timberland portfolio," said Doyle R. Simons, president and CEO.
