"The Emmersons added to (the large-log mill) when they bought the mill in 1976," Little said. "But the old mill had limitations." Little said the new mill isn't running at 100 percent efficiency yet, "but we're still putting out a lot of lumber." SPI, which is the second-largest lumber producing company in the nation, produces about 250 million board feet of lumber a year at the Quincy mill. The Quincy mill cuts Ponderosa pine, sugar pine, white fir, Douglas fir and incense cedar. In addition to the large-log sawmill, the Quincy mill has a small-log sawmill, dry kilns, a planer mill, the Quincy railroad and a cogeneration/biomass boiler. Little said every last piece of wood that arrives at the mill is used in one way or another. He said the cogeneration facility generates 20 megawatts of electricity, or enough power for 20,000 homes. Despite a current slump in lumber prices, the mill will be stockpiling logs during the summer, the peak logging season. B&RBEP00 SHOP BARBER GEORGE A.

Photos by Dan McDonald "We are ramping up the log deck," he said. "We try to build up enough (log supply) to last through the winter months (when most local logging shuts down because of muddy roads)." Those taking the tour appeared impressed with the new mill and the overall operation in general. Plumas Supervisor Lori Simpson thanked the Emmerson family for its ongoing commitment to Plumas County. "My grandson lives just down the street (from the mill)," Simpson told the Emmersons. "And I'm thankful he is going to grow up smelling fresh-cut lumber. "I want to thank the Emmerson family for investing in our county and keeping jobs here." Little said automation has been gradually taking over the timber industry and that jobs nationwide have been lost because of it. It takes 15 to 20 workers each shift to operate the new large-log mill. He said automation is necessary to keep the company competitive in the industry and ensure there will still be jobs at the Quincy mill.
