Description: California's timberlands and forest products industries have played an important part in the growth of California's economy. Discovery of gold at the site of the first waterpowered sawmill in interior California triggered the gold rush of 1848, an event that led the California Territory into booming growth and statehood. Following that discovery, the lumber industry grew in inland California to meet demand for timbers and lumber in the mines and communities of the Mother Lode in California and the Comstock Lode in Nevada. On the coast, the lumber industry developed in response to needs for lumber in construction of San Francisco, other coastal communities, and the river communities of interior California. Both the coastal and inland areas had vast timber reserves readily available for conversion to lumber.
