Collins grows its California footprint

One year after the Dixie Fire burned through northern California, Collins announced the acquisition of 58,000 acres of forestland from Shasta Forests Timberlands. The largest timberland purchase in the company’s 167-year history, the move is a sign of Collins’ commitment to its Chester Sawmill.

“Collins suffered losses in the major 2021 fires, along with other landowners and community members, but this acquisition is an important achievement and commitment to the future of our employees, operations, and local communities,” said Galen Collins Smith, Vice President of Resources for Collins.
