Olson-Lawyer is no longer using one of its wigwam burners, made possible by the start of particle board production in area plants. The burner is being used as a silo to store shavings. Special equipment designed and installed by Medford Steel and Blowpipe divides the burner into two sections, one for Douglas fir, the other for white fir.
