Mill construction delay sets back major Arizona thinning project

It was this month that a Montana-based company had planned to break ground on a $200 million mill in Winslow as part of the biggest forest restoration project in the United States.

The mill is projected to employ 500 people directly, not counting truck-drivers, loggers or other affiliated workers.

And the scope of the work is massive: More than 920 square miles over four national forests (equal to all the land that lies between Flagstaff, Wupatki National Monument, Valle and Williams).
