Timber Harvest Approved For Local 575 Acres

Sponsored by:

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has approved Sierra Pacific Industries´ plan to harvest nearly 575 acres of it´s own property near Lyons Reservoir and the Stanislaus River.

It could potentially produce an estimated 8 to 10 million board feet of lumber over the next two years

All of the logs will be brought to the company´s Standard and Chinese Camp sawmills where within the last few weeks, hundreds of workers have been laid off.

Several Northern California environmental organizations were quick to criticize SPI´s local harvesting plan. Nearly 40% of all lumber product purchased and/or used by Motherlode consumers is imported from countries such as China.
