No. 34 Collins Family
Truman “T.D.” Collins (1831–1914) found his calling as a tree man before the Civil War and ultimately became the largest private landowner in Pennsylvania. Property in the Allegheny Mountains accounts for about one-third of the family’s acreage, while the pine-rich COLLINS ALMANOR FOREST in California’s Sierra Nevadas totals some 94,000 acres. The COLLINS LAKEVIEW FOREST, which includes nearly 100,000 acres, straddles California’s Modoc County and Oregon’s Lake and Klamath counties.
