Sierra Pacific Industries purchases 101 Ranch

Saturday, Aug. 8, 2015 — Sierra Pacific Industries has purchased the 101 Ranch, located about 13 miles east of Westwood, from the Dye Creek Cattle Company of Red Bluff. The sale was expected to close Friday, July 31, according to Mark Pawlicki, director, Corporate Affairs and Sustainability for Sierra Pacific Industries.
    Pawlicki said SPI plans to manage the ranch for timber production and incorporate the timberlands into its overall long-term forest management objectives. The ranch is 2,318 acres and has 1,202 acres of timberland. The rest of the acreage is mostly grazing land and the timber company will continue the grazing leases. Also it will continue the ski lease with Lassen Community College, which operates Coppervale Ski Area, and the fishing lease on Goodrich Creek, although fishing has been suspended this year due to low water levels.
