This map and spreadsheet represent our attempt to list all the lumber and building material facilities that have closed since January 2008. It is based on company announcements, press reports and information compiled by LBM associations. Most facility descriptions and closure dates are based on those reports. In some cases, we don't know exactly when a facility closed, so we gave general dates, such as reporting a yard that closed in 2008 as being shut on 12/31/08. In addition, the fact that a facility is closed is not meant to imply that the entire company is out of business.

While comprehensive, this list is likely to be incomplete. You are invited to contact ProSales editor Craig Webb with reports of closures.
