Sierra Pacific Industries closes public access to its California forestlands due to wildfire risk Friday, June 28

Due to the increasing risk of wildfires, Sierra Pacific Industries will close its California forestlands to public access beginning Friday, June 28.

SPI considers several wildfire risk factors when closing its lands, including increasing temperatures, dry vegetation, low moisture levels in fuels, and long-range weather forecasts for the region. The closure will remain in effect until moisture levels and long-range weather forecasts improve.

The use of SPI’s roads and walk-in access to the company’s privately owned lands for recreational purposes will be prohibited. Public roads crossing SPI lands are not affected by this closure.
