ANDERSON, California , October 16, 2023 (press release) –

Sierra Pacific Industries’ long-time Vice President of Resources, Dan Tomascheski, will be retiring at the end of 2023. Dan’s 45-year career at Sierra Pacific is truly remarkable.   As the forestry program’s chief steward since 1990, Dan has been the leader in the growth and sustainable management of the largest privately-owned timberland holdings in the U.S.
“It is with mixed emotions that we share the news of Dan Tomascheski’ s plans to retire,” said SPI President Emeritus Red Emmerson. “Dan’s accomplishments and contributions to the Company are beyond measure. We appreciate Dan’s work to build a top-notch leadership team in the Forestry Division that will keep our forests thriving and a steady supply of logs to the mills for years to come.”
“It is equally important to recognize Dan’s influence and leadership beyond Sierra Pacific,” said SPI CEO Mark Emmerson. “Dan has been instrumental in shaping how federal and state policymakers view the positive aspects of our industry and private forest ownership. He built valuable relationships and is a trusted advocate for the right ways to sustainably manage our shared forest resources. The positive impacts of his work extend to the entire industry and our public forests.”
Dan joined Sierra Pacific in 1978 as a timber cruiser for U.S. Forest Service timber sales in Northern California. In the subsequent years, he held other positions including Quincy-area forester and timberlands manager. In his roles as timberlands manager and Vice President of Resources, Dan has overseen the expansion of SPI’s forest ownership from 135,000 acres in California to over 2.4 million acres across the West Coast. In his retirement, Dan will continue to provide a valued role to the company’s forestry program as a strategic advisor.
SPI is a third-generation, family-owned forest products company based in Anderson, California. The company is the largest private landowner in the U.S., owning and managing over 2.4 million acres of timberland in California, Washington, and Oregon. Along with being a windows manufacturer, it is one of the largest U.S. lumber, millwork and biomass energy producers. The company is committed to sustainable forest management and manufacturing innovation along with a commitment to their people and operating communities.
