EAST SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV) – Michael Willey has been in the wood business for nearly 40 years. He's the manager of Willey Lumber Company Inc. and this year is unlike any other. "When we bought 400 bundles of plywood last year, we spent $ 4,000 on that plywood," said Willey.
He said the increase is based on demand. "None of the mills can produce fast enough, fast enough. They don't have entire work teams because they were all taken out because of COVID," said Willey.
