Sierra Pacific Industries is a third-generation, family-owned and operated forest products company based in northern California and the state of Washington. With nearly 1.9 million acres of forestland in California and Washington, Sierra Pacific is the largest private forestland owner in North America. Sierra Pacific operates 12 sawmills, 8 co-generation facilities and 4 wood re-manufacturing/millwork plants in California and Washington, as well as one of the fastest growing wood window companies in the Western United States. We employ nearly 3,400 people.
Sierra Pacific is an industry leader in technological advances. We use state of the art computerized scanning equipment to assure we are getting the highest yields from our raw materials. Whether in our sawmills or millwork plants, innovative equipment run by highly-skilled operators ensures that we utilize all available wood fiber. The fiber remaining from one operation becomes the raw material for another, guaranteeing minimal waste. Shavings and chips are pressed into particleboard. Bark is used for various forms of landscape material or converted into boiler fuel to make steam for drying lumber and is used twice to co-generate electricity. Our 8 co-generation facilities produce over 150 megawatts of electrical power to operate our mills. The balance is sold to local public utility companies in an effort to reduce our nation’s dependence on scarce fossil fuels. Sierra Pacific prides itself on being a good neighbor.
