Sierra Pacific Industries to Close Public Access to
Oregon Forestlands Due to Wildfire Risk

Closure begins Monday, July 1 based on Risk of Wildfires

Eugene, OR—Due to the increasing risk of wildfires, Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) will close its Oregon forestlands to public access beginning Monday, July 1.

SPI considers several 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.
