Small mill owners interested in Mitkof project

Falls Creek Forest Products and Southeast Alaska Wood are two businesses that could benefit from a small timber sale program on Mitkof Island. Falls Creek is owned by longtime local resident Jerod Cook. The small sawmill and firewood operation is a spare-time job for Cook, who works as an enforcement officer for NOAA fisheries and also serves as the town’s volunteer fire chief. Southeast Alaska Wood is owned by Chris Fry who plans to relocate his small milling business from Tacoma to Petersburg. It’s currently called Northwest Wood. To find out more about their operations, Matt Lichtenstein spoke with Fry just after the Mitkof Project meeting earlier this month and, later, interviewed Cook in the KFSK studios.
