Sierra Pacific Industries California Forestlands Closed to Public Access Due to Extreme Wildfire Danger

Anderson, CA – Due to extreme wildfire conditions and risk to lives and property, Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) is closing its California forestlands to public access. This closure will begin Friday, Sept. 4, at 5 p.m. and remain in effect until further notice. “SPI takes its commitment to protecting our forest resources and public safety seriously,” said Andrea Howell, SPI spokeswoman. “With weather conditions continuing to bring significant wildfire risk, along with fire-fighting resources already fully deployed across the state for other wildfires, we made the difficult decision to close our lands to public access and recreation.”




Public roads on SPI’s forestlands will remain open, but walk-in access to their privately-owned lands will not be allowed. To learn more about the company’s recreation access policies and current closure restrictions, visit http://spi-ind.com/OurForests/RecreationAccess.

Sierra Pacific Industries is a third-generation, family-owned forest products company based in Anderson, California. The firm owns and manages over 2 million acres of timberland in California and Washington and is one of the U.S. largest lumber producer. The company also produces millwork, windows, and renewable energy.

    I think it's all up in the mountains (any county especially Tuolumne/Calaveras) and the holdings are interspersed with USFS service lands unless USFS sanctions them some property. OR-just Google it.

    No need to worry. SPI has sturdy metal gates that will prevent most vehicles from entering their land. Walkers and bicycle riders should have no trouble getting around the locked gates.
    Most SPI employees, if they saw you, would even say boo to a walker or bike rider. Its the motorcycles and vehicles that drive onto their property that might encounter some resistance.
    They also tend to post a notice telling you not to enter their land. Shouldn't be too difficult to figure it out.

    To the original question : how do we know where all this is ?

    It’s the part of Calaveras county SPI doesn’t want you to see. google earth our home and notice the massive checkerboard In the middle elevation foothills.
    Those are all Clearcuts. Impacted, trees cut and shipped to China.

    Notice how we have no local mills in Calaveras ?And how much of this clear cutting benefits local business ?
    Does SPI contribute to our local
    Economy it’s a multi billion dollar company after all.

    SPI bought all this land for
    Pennies on the dollar and that land was stolen from the Miwok Peoples who lived here
    .
