Detailed Information:
In the Summer of 2000, Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI) obtained permission from the California Department of Forestry to begin clear-cutting 884 acres in the San Antonio Creek watershed adjoining Big Trees State Park in Calaveras County in the Sierra Nevada. Approximately one-third of the planned clear-cuts were then completed. Since then SPI has continued the clear-cutting next to Big Trees State Park.

In addition, SPI owns approximately 75% of the remaining forested property in Calaveras County. Documents filed with CDF show that SPI intends to clear-cut the majority of their property in California over the next 50 years. Ebbetts Pass Forest Watch is organized to oppose SPI's forest practice of clear-cutting.
