Sierra Pacific Industries owns and manages about 2 million acres of timberland in California and Washington. Through its network of sawmills the company produces millwork, lumber, and wood fiber products, fencing, aluminum-clad and wood patio doors, and windows. SPI also operates cogeneration plants that recycle wood waste into electricity for its plants; excess electricity is sold to local energy service providers.

The Emmerson family continues to own and operate SPI.
