Collins Company has announced that it recently completed the company’s largest purchase with the acquisition of 58,000 acres of forestland in northeastern California from Shasta Forest Timberlands LLC. and its affiliates. The primary tracts of land are near the towns of Westwood, Susanville, and Adin. Overall, the area spreads across Lassen, Plumas, Modoc, Shasta, and Sierra counties.
Collins Company is a 167-year-old, family-owned, FSC-certified forest management and products company, with operations in California, Oregon, and Pennsylvania. With this acquisition, Collins will now manage 188,000 acres in California and over 370,000 acres nationwide.
Commenting on the acquisition, Galen Collins Smith, Vice President of Resources for Collins, said:
“Shasta Forests Timberlands has managed these lands to the highest standard for most of the last century. We are excited and proud of the opportunity to continue stewarding these forests with a balanced focus on forest health, resiliency, and productivity. 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.”
