Weyerhaeuser says not so fast to county on land-buy plan

Weyerhaeuser has asked the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to remove its 32,795 acres from an Alachua County project sought for acquisition under the Florida Forever program.

“As the majority landowner included in Alachua County’s Lochloosa Forest application, we believe this application is premature with regard to Weyerhaeuser’s property,” the letter states. “Although we have had limited discussions with the county about a potential land swap under very specific conditions, we have had no conversations about a land sale. In fact, we were very surprised to learn that the commission had submitted this application without discussing it with us.”
