FEDERAL WAY, WASH. (AP) - Weyerhaeuser plans to close lumber mills in Oklahoma and Oregon in response to depressed demand for wood to build homes.

The closures at the company’s iLevel mills in Wright City, Okla., and Dallas, Ore., will affect about 307 workers.

Since Jan. 1, Weyerhaeuser Co. has closed 10 wood products manufacturing facilities and virtually all sites are experiencing reduced operations.

The company has announced the closure of four softwood lumber facilities so far this year.
