Before the Thanksgiving holiday, USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue toured Rex Lumber in Bristol, FL and the surrounding timber basket damaged by Hurricane Michael. During the meeting, Rex Lumber representatives discussed the need to salvage as much downed and leaning timber as possible, get trees replanted in the impacted timber basin, and increase access to timber from federal forests to keep the mill supplied with timber.
