Protection of Lumber Mill Operations for American Forest Products/Georgia Pacific (Richard Roby)
I represented American Forest Products, then a major California timber operation that was later absorbed by Georgia Pacific Corporation. Working with in house counsel (Mr. Roby), I conducted litigation against, and negotiations with, a local developer who was proposing commercial and residential development adjacent to the company’s local lumber mill (Martel area, County of Amador) that would have generated complaints of noise concerning night time mill operations that American Forest Products feared would lead to a forced closure of the mill, as the company had previously experienced with a mill in the Fresno area when urban development encroached upon it. Mr. Roby and I crafted, and obtained approval by the developer for, a noise easement for mill operations over the developer’s land, as the solution.
