Poplar Gets Popular

Record #:
Yellow poplar growing in McDowell County has attracted the interest of Oregon-based Columbia Plywood Corporation. The company's subsidiary, Columbia Carolina Corporation, is building a plant at Old Fort to make its product, with completion expected by summer of 1982. Initial production is expected to be twenty million board feet a year. Over two hundred people will be employed when the plant reaches full operation.
