Economy

The primary industries in Chester are lumber manufacturing and tourism. Collins Pine (a division of The Collins Companies) has been in operation since the 1940s under a truly "sustained yield" management plan using selective harvesting. The company's forest management practices have been certified as FSC sustainable by Scientific Certification Systems, which designated it a "state-of-the-art well-managed forest."  Collins no longer maintains the distinction of Chester's dominant employer, though it remains the single business with the most employees.

Other logging companies operating in the area are Roseburg Forest Products, and Sierra Pacific Industries, the latter of which locally utilizes clear-cutting, rather than more environmentally sound practices.

Lake Almanor has developed as a vacation/tourist destination and Chester serves as the retail center for the area. Four of the Almanor basin's six gas-stations are located in Chester, as well as the Almanor basin's only full-sized grocery store.

Media

The primary local news source is the Chester Progressive, a local newspaper published every Wednesday.

Resident Celebrities

Chuck Norris, whose wife Gena Norris is a Chester native, has a vacation home in Chester and is known to frequent the local "Pine Shack Frosty" and "Duval's Smokehouse" eating establishments.

Politics

In the state legislature Chester is located in the 1st Senate District, represented by Republican Dave Cox, and in the 3rd Assembly District, represented by Republican Rick Keene. Federally, Chester is located in California's 4th congressional district, which has a Cook PVI of R +11 and is represented by Republican John Doolittle.
