In October, 1989, Weyerhaeuser "sold" its Paneling Division to Chesapeake Hardwood Products Inc., a newly-formed affiliate of the Indonesian Kalimanis Group.

"Weyerhaeuser will remain a customer and distribute for the new company" (Seattle Times and Post-Intelligencer, Oct. 24, 1989). Weyerhaeuser has been boycotted, along with Georgia-Pacific, for being one of the major importers of tropical wood in the U.S. In letters to the Rainforest Action Network, Weyerhaeuser denies controlling Chesapeake and denies having tropical forest business. See Rainforest Action Network leaflet, Dec. 1989, and World Rainforest Report, Jan-Feb. 1990.
In 1971, Weyerhaeuser bought ITCI (Ann Rep 1971, p. 21). By 1971, Weyerhaeuser had rights to two million acres in Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines (Ann Rep 1971). In its 1978 annual report, it said "Our operations in Canada, Indonesia, and Malaysia depend solely or substantially upon purchase of government timber."
ITCI held 1.5 million acres containing ten billion board feet of timber in Kalimantan, Borneo. Weyerhaeuser signed a 21-year agreement with the Indonesian military for the concession, obtained by paying $3.5 million in advance to the army, which needed cash after overthrowing the Sukarno regime. The concession called for eventual payment of $65 million to the army. Weyerhaeuser would invest $30 million over ten years, while gross revenues were estimated to worth up to $300 million. Weyerhaeuser planned a sawmill and chip plant at Samarinda, and also exported raw logs. Weyerhaeuser announced its intention to remove tribespeople living in longhouse communities, and to relocate them to company towns with schools, churches, hospitals, etc. Weyerhaeuser vice-president Charles Bingham said the Asian operations were beneficial.
Weyerhaeuser sold P. T. International Timber in 1981 (Directory of Multinationals, Macmillan, 1989, p. 1417). The Indonesian Network on Tropical Forest Conservation (SKEPHI), in its "Selling Our Common Heritage: Commercialization of Indonesian Forest" (1990, p. 24,30-31) said, "Despite complaining of unstable political and economic decisions on the part of the Indonesian Government, Weyerhaeuser seems to be more committed to maintaining the forestry sector in Indonesia compared to other foreign investors. The answer actually lies in forest plantations. ITCI was looking for a more profitable timber estate plantation for pulp industries rather than concern for Indonesia's forest sustainability. ICY [sic] at present operates one of the timber estate [sic] in East Kalimantan. In fact ITCI's mahogany plantation is suffering from pest infestation. In the U.S., Weyerhaeuser would have to abide by many environmental safeguard rules. It is doubtful whether they applied the same measure in Indonesia during the seventies. Weyerhaeuser plans to log its entire [600-square kilometer, $22 million] concessions by 1990.
By its own estimate, Weyerhaeuser has clearcut about four million acres since 1900 (1990 Annual Report, p. A-1).
In the United States, Weyerhaeuser is involved in developing the Snoqualmie Tribe's traditional lands at Snoqualmie Falls, Washington.
In 1993, George Weyerhaeuser, Jr. was named chief executive of Weyerhaeuser Canada (Stevens, 1993).
Weyerhaeuser's Canadian holdings:
In 1971, Weyerhaeuser had cutting rights to 7.7 million acres of B.C. softwood, and 1.4 million acres of eastern Canadian hardwood (Annual Report 1971). In 1978, it was about the same; 7.9 million acres in B.C. and one million in eastern Canada (Annual Report 1978, p.29).
By 1990, Weyerhaeuser had long-term license arrangements to 13 million acres in Canada (British Columbia, 3.6 million; Saskatchewan, 8.5 million; Alberta, 1.4 million) (Annual Report 1990, p.A-1).
In 1993, Weyerhaeuser had long-term license arrangements to 17.8 million acres in Canada; its timber inventory in Canada was about 190 billion board feet (compared to 104 billion board feet in the United States (according to calculations derived from the company's 1993 Annual Report, p. 5).
Canadian operations and corporations:
In "Innovations and Trees," a booklet it published for its 75th anniversary in 1975, Weyerhaeuser had the following foreign operations were listed:
Seattle Times, Sept. 12, 1993. (George Weyerhaeuser, Jr. is named chief executive of Weyerhaeuser Canada; he has a degree in forestry from Yale (1976), has worked for Weyerhaeuser in Arkansas and Oklahoma, and has been a director of The Nature Conservancy. The Weyerhaeuser Canada subsidiary's $1.4 billion in sales are more than 15 percent of the company's total 1992 sales; employs 4,300 people and holds licenses to cut 18.8 million acres).
Weyerhaeuser. University of Toronto forestry lecture series. [s. l.] Weyerhaeuser Canada Ltd.
Weyerhaeuser in Russia
In 1990 and 1991, Pacific Northwest newspapers began to report that Weyerhaeuser was "eyeing" the forests of Siberia.
Having negotiated for two years to set up a joint venture to log along the Khabarovsk Krai coast, Weyerhaeuser could gain access to a million hectares of forest, including virgin forest along the Botcha River. The Botcha is habitat to endangered plants and animals, and is inhabited by about 300 Orochi indigenous peoples. Weyerhaeuser has lobbied for the venture, trying to convince local residents and environmentalists of its environmental expertise. The company has given expense-paid tours of its U.S. operations.
Weyerhaeuser is mentioned in an editorial on Siberia's forests written by NBC TV news anchor Tom Brokaw's (New York Times; reprinted in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, October 23, 1992, p. A15).
