The Northwest Hardwoods lumber mill in Arlington is closing Thursday, putting about 40 people out of work.

A vice president of the Tacoma-based company, Brian Narramore, told The Daily Herald (http://is.gd/fJ36kn) the mill had problems with supply and demand – a shortage of local timber and a low demand for lumber for new houses.

The sawmill has operated since 1967. It’s the second Snohomish County mill to announce its closing in a month. The Seattle-Snohomish mill in Snohomish is shutting down in March.
