Almost 9,000 acres of timberland in western Saline County sold for $13.5 million.
Green Bay Packaging Inc. of Green Bay, Wis., bought the property from Weyerhaeuser Co. of Federal Way, Wash.
The 8,973 acres stretch from the Garland County line to within 4.5 miles of Paron and lie roughly 2 miles south of Lake Winona and 2 miles north of Hot Springs Village.
You might recall the two parties struck a $14.2 million deal for about 8,835 acres in Saline County back in 2011.
Both properties support Green Bay’s pulp and paperboard mill in Morrilton.
