Oregon's Blue Heron Paper Mill

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

The USA's Pacific Northwest was once home to a huge forest products industry, with hundreds of saw and paper mills around the region.   With the rise of much tighter environmental restrictions, high labor costs, and tough competition from foreign producers, the timber products industry in Washington and Oregon has been decimated.  In this video, contributor 60 Seconds gives us a bird's eye view of a paper mill in Blue Heron, OR which succumbed to the poor conditions and was abandoned several years ago.
