Forest products company Weyerhaeuser produces a variety of softwood lumber and other building materials in North America. One of the world's largest private owners of timberland, the company harvests trees for its products from 12 million acres of forest that it owns in the US and 14 million acres that it manages in Canada. Exports account for about 15% of the company's sales. Incorporated in 1900 as Weyerhaeuser Timber Co., the company operates as a real estate investment trust (REIT) because of its vast land holdings. The company merged with rival Plum Creek in a deal worth $10 billion, bringing together the two biggest owners of timberland in the US; shortly after that deal, Weyerhaeuser spun off its cellulose fibers business for $2.5 billion.
