HUNT FOREST PRODUCTS ANNOUNCED LAST YEAR THAT A NEW SAWMILL WOULD BE BUILT IN THE VILLAGE OF URANIA IN LASALLE PARISH. A YEAR LATER…THE MILL IS BEGINNING OPERATIONS…HUNT FOREST PRODUCTS IS A FULL SERVICE WOOD PRODUCTS COMPANY BASED IN RUSTON, LOUISIANA AND ALREADY OPERATES A LASALLE PARISH LUMBER MILL IN OLLA, ALONG WITH A GRANT PARISH PLYWOOD PLANT IN POLLOCK.
