Collins Sawmill readying for Fremont-Winema fire salvage logs

After nearly a year of logging private lands burned by last summer’s Barry Point fire, the Collins Pine Company’s Lakeview Sawmill is positioned to begin harvesting on portions of Forest Service lands damaged by the fire.

Last summer’s Barry Point fire burned 92,977 acres of public and private lands in Lake and Modoc counties, including 43,134 acres on the Fremont-Winema National Forest, 21,820 on the Modoc National Forest and 11,200 of private lands.

The Fremont-Winema hopes to clear hurdles that will allow the harvest and sale of up to 25 million board feet of timber (MMBF), possibly beginning later this year. Logging would be done under contracts with the Lakeview Sawmill, formerly known as the Fremont Sawmill.
