Phillips Brothers Mill (Shasta County)
Located north of the Oak Run Post Office on Bull Skin Ridge Road, CA, the history of the Phillips property dates back to the 1890s and is still in the family. At this field day you will see 120 years of forest management and how land management practices have changed, what went right and what went wrong. You will have the opportunity to talk with resource professionals who will explain the regulations landowners must adhere to in order to accomplish their management objectives and see these practices implemented on the ground. Products are made from trees grown on this Tree Farm, which are protected, in perpetuity, as a sustainable, biodiverse, multi-aged forest under the guidelines established in a conservation easement with the Pacific Forest Trust. The property has a working Non-Industrial Timber Management Plan and has been placed on the national register of Historic Places. Check out the website: phillipsbrothersmill.com.
